Williams Tower Gallery / Houston, TX :: March 12 - April 25, 2010

This exhibition and the artists’ work in Assembly, are a reflection of the region’s place in the American mythos. Edward Robinson, one of Assembly's curators explains, “The cultural legacy of Southern California has engaged in an ongoing dialogue between utopian ideals and apocalyptic apprehension – the boosterism of the ‘end of the road’ state heralded for its promise and abundance, in contrast to concerns about the fragility of its natural and constructed environment.”
