About the Exhibitions

We Chat: Dialogue in Contemporary Chinese Art

WeChat is a mobile messaging app, developed in China, with more than 600 million users worldwide. Combining the functions of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, WeChat has become the primary means of communication for members of China’s younger generation, now living and working throughout the world. The exhibition We Chat: Dialogue in Contemporary Chinese Art explores how artists who were born after China’s Cultural Revolution are challenging the traditional notions of Chinese identity. Featured are works by CHEN Wei, GUO Xi, JIN Shan, Pixy Yijun LIAO, LIU Chuang, LU Yang, MA Qiusha, SHI Zhiying, SUN Xun, and Bo WANG. 

Yuriko Yamaguchi

Artist Yuriko Yamaguchi uses materials such as resins, wire, wood, flax, and other materials to create large-scale abstract sculptures that resonate uniquely in the spaces in which they are installed. Her spontaneous responses to architectural structures introduce a tension between the built environment and our lived experience of such spaces, emphasizing movement, color, and the play of light, which alters as the day progresses.

 

About The Museum Experience

The Museum Experience features four walkable “zones” to help visitors navigate through the Houston Museum District and learn more about all 19 museums in a more personal way. On the last Saturday of January, April, July and September, each zone showcases a handful of museums at a time, complete with special programming, pedicabs in select zones and food trucks.

Located on the northeast portion of the Museum District, Zone 2 includes eight museums. Those museums are: Lawndale Art Center, Holocaust Museum Houston, DiverseWorks, Czech Center Museum Houston, Buffalo Soldiers National Museum, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Houston Museum of African American Culture, and Asia Society Texas Center.
