Celebrate the opening of Jae Ko's solo-exhibition at a free and open to the public reception on June 17 from 6:30-9 pm.

For her debut at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Ko will create a site-specific installation entitled flow , the newest iteration in a series she calls Forces of Nature.  The room-sized sculptural relief is constructed from nearly one ton of recycled commercial adding machine paper that has been re-spooled and shaped to fit the architecture of CAMH’s Zilkha Gallery.

Cash bar; free admission. Learn more about the exhibition here.
