''Jane Alexander: Surveys (from the Cape of Good Hope)''
There’s nothing ordinary about the exhibition ''Jane Alexander: Surveys (from the Cape of Good Hope),'' currently at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston. Johannesburg-born Alexander creates intriguing hybrid human/animal figures and places them in unexpected settings. In the installation African Adventure, for example, we see a creature with a bird’s head (complete with long, curved beak) and long legs, with human genitals and body (sans arms), walking along a patch of dirt strewn with toy trucks and sickles. In Frontier with Ghost, we see a pale creature with a deer-like head and a human neck and torso standing amid rows of chain-link fence topped with barbed wire. 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays. Through November 4. 5216 Montrose.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 10. Continues through Nov. 4, 2012
