Next stop for the Barkley L. Hendricks train:  Houston.
The much-loved American artist’s acclaimed retrospective travels for the last time to the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, where it opens Friday, January 29. It’s hard to believe the journey began almost exactly two years ago at the Nasher Museum, where the show was organized by Trevor Schoonmaker, curator of contemporary art. The exhibition travelled with rave reviews to New York, Los Angeles and Philadelphia.
Now, after winning two major artist awards and landing on the cover of Artforum magazine, this last opening party will likely be bittersweet for Barkley (and his wife, Susan). It’s been a great run.

Lucky enough to be in Houston? RSVP for the CAMH event on Facebook.
