Lynn Randolph: Between Worlds
Curated by Susie Kalil
October 6, 2017 - January 21, 2018
Between Worlds responds to Randolph's ongoing work with palliative care patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Comprised of approximately twenty drawings, these painstakingly rendered works deftly combine elements of the weird and scientific with acute psychological and metaphoric realism and builds bridges to the spiritual. In the words of curator Susie Kalil: "Lynn Randolph's drawings come to grips with the realities of who we are, a spiritual tenor both dire and redeeming. Her works have soul as well as nerve- a sustained shriek about power and morality in a new global era. The silent fear of dying informs Randolph's drawings, which ambush us with relentless personal conviction and spellbinding strangeness. Caught up in the medical paradigm of cure, we assent to heroic measures that may deprive us of final dignity. What is death and what does loss mean? What has happened to death as a community event and mourning as a communal practice? Randolph's drawings remind us that we are embodied beings yearning for communion with one another, that we suffer pain and loss; that we struggle to transcend our bodies and our anguish by connecting with outer worlds and inner realms."
Katherine Trimble: Touch Box
September 22 - November 5, 2017
Project Space
Essay by Melissa Warak, Ph.D.

When does a sound become music? When does language break down into sound? What happens to live music if you can't see the performer? Houston-based artist and musician, Katherine Trimble asks her audience to contemplate the breakdown of sounds in an immersive site-specific installation entitled Touch Box.
