40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World
1515 Hermann Dr. | 713.521.1515
In this powerful exhibit featuring the photography of Howard G. Buffett, 40 photographs document the world hunger crisis as part of a global awareness campaign. Traveling to more than 137 countries, Buffett turned his camera lens on the powerful forces that fuel hunger and poverty. A philanthropist and farmer, Buffett believes that each of us has about 40 chances to accomplish our life goals, just as farmers have about 40 growing seasons to improve their harvests. His photography is a call to action to find lasting solutions to the world hunger crisis.

Referencing current violent social conditions, Telepathic Improvisation uses humans and non-humans, movement, speech, gesture, music, light and smoke to interpret composer Pauline Oliveros’s 1974 score of the same title. While the action of the film may appear
abstract, it nonetheless references specific moments of leftist protest, queer S&M club life, acts of surveillance and fantasies of new relations between human and non-human objects in an interstellar dimension.

Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam through Time & Place

Featuring more than 100 outstanding works of art, Wondrous Worlds: Art & Islam through Time & Place will showcase the long history, vast geographic expanse and amazing diversity of works of art in the Islamic world. Two factors distinguish this exhibition: first, the inclusion of works from Southeast Asia and East and West Africa, areas largely overlooked in most exhibitions of Islamic art; and second, modern and contemporary works are featured side-by-side with historic objects. Works in the exhibition cover nearly all media, ranging from carpets to dress to jewelry, ceramics, glass, metal, paintings, prints, calligraphy and photographs.
