Gallery Talk by Thorsten Brinkmann
A complimentary light lunch will be provided to all who attend.

Rice University Art Gallery has commissioned German artist Thorsten Brinkmann to create a new site-specific installation, The Great Cape Rinderhorn, for his first museum solo-exhibition in the United States. Working primarily from objects found in Houston, Brinkmann will turn Rice Gallery into a place where the familiar is made strange as castaway goods are reimagined through Brinkmann's idiosyncratic sensibility that combines assemblage sculptures with his self-portrait and still life photography.
