It's the last weekend of the year, and there isn't a whole bunch going on artwise. So it's a good weekend to see some of those shows you've meant to see but haven't gotten around to yet. Like the MFAH's big war photography exhibit. Or The Progress of Love at the Menil. But since Thanksgiving, Houston has really been the place to see performance art (see this, this, this, and this, for example). It's been quite remarkable, really, and this weekend continues the trend.
CORRECTION: I've just been informed that this has been moved to January 4th. Autumn Knight at the Art League Houston (as part of Stacks) at 6 pm. This is the last week of Stacks which makes Autumn Knight the last artist to have a week long residency in this innovative exhibit. This really is Autumn Knight's big night--you start here at the Art League and then go to see...
El Diablo y El Cristo Negro by Autumn Knight at Project Row Houses at 8 pm. This performance is part of her Project Row Houses project, the performance lab Futz. (This show is still on for Friday night!)
Comeplay Comply Arraycycle by Jonathan Jindra and Y.E. Torres (with Brian Taylor, Sandy Ewen, Zubi Puente and Baltazar Canales) at El Rincón Social at 8 pm. This music/performance event includes video art, fabric art and "the art of 'chopping'" (presumably not the wood kind). It could be a brilliant Gesamtkunstwerk or sprawling mess, but it's sure to be interesting either way!
