Houston Museum of African American Culture

Ellsworth Ausby: Odyssey

Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023 – Saturday, Apr. 8, 2023

The Houston Museum of African American Culture presents "Ellsworth Ausby: Odyssey," a posthumous exhibition of paintings by the artist Ellsworth Ausby who died in Brooklyn in 2011. The HMAAC exhibition primarily focuses on the Afrofuturist abstract painter's work on cut canvas from the 1970s, which embodies his vibrant geometric forms that reflect his achievement of liberating the canvas from rigid structures, allowing them to float freely on the walls and spaces they occupy.
