''9 by Mick Johnson'' will be spread over two floors in the Rice Media Center. “I can’t say for sure,” Johnson says, “but I think the installation part will take place downstairs.” The upstairs space will include (maybe) paintings Johnson made in his studio in preparation for the exhibit and some wall drawings. Johnson says he’ll likely include more background work because the exhibit’s at a university, which means many of the viewers will be students. “I want to show them more behind the scenes about how I got here.”
There’s an opening reception with Johnson at 6 p.m. on January 12. Regular viewing hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Through February 10. Rice University, 6100 Main. For information, call 713‑348‑4882 or visit www.rice.edu. Free.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: Jan. 12. Continues through Feb. 10, 2012
