Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
B. Anele: I Dont’ Play That Game – Ongoing until 10/7/2018
Unlike other galleries, studios, and museums that display mostly photography and paintings, the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft has a more narrowly defined focus. Art made with crafting materials. You may call them sculptures but many of the works of art displayed at the HCCC transcend sculpting and defy definition. Take for instance the ongoing exhibition, I don’t play that game by Houston based artist, B. Anele.
Anele presents a collection of wildly unique works of art that incorporate raw canvas garments into soft sculptures. The pieces are highly exaggerated, even architectural, yet functional as garments and displayed on models. The artist creates provocative art that challenges its audience, fusing the real and the surreal to join fashion with environment.
I Don’t Play That Game will by on display at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft until October 7, 2018.
