W/ REGINA AGU, PETER LUCAS, AND ADRIENNE PERRY

On the final evening of into the midst of things, Houston artists Regina Agu, Peter Lucas, and Adrienne Perry will present a live, de-centered collage of words, images, films, sounds, and music from a wide variety of sources. This unique event will shift the gallery’s atmosphere and interact with the exhibition’s themes of place, origin, hybridity, and limbo.

Enjoy cold beverages generously provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company and Topo Chico USA.
