Come Ready to Take a Selfie at the Soto Exhibit at the MFAH

The Houston Penetrable is so joyous it can hamdle almost any thing.

Accompanying the installation is an exhibition nearby of eight interesting pieces from various phases of Soto's career — including his Plexiglas boxes, and selections from his Agujas (Needles), Ambivalencias (Ambivalences) and Vibraciones (Vibrations) series. These works illustrate Soto's contributions to kinetic art, giving museum visitors an understanding of the ideas expressed by "The Houston Penetrable" — and they are also exciting and fascinating, though less playful.
