Join us for a full day of programming held in conjunction with "Mickalene Thomas: Waiting on a Prime-Time Star." Dimensions Variable brings together a wide range of arts, from music and design to fashion and performance, all in conversation with the exhibition on view. Hope Stone Dance kicks off the day with the premiere of a new work, Coolest News on Planet Earth, Chapter 1 (12-1pm); followed by a poetry performance by Houston Poet Laureate Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton (1:30-2pm); a fashion show by Onyii & Co., a contemporary women’s wear brand incorporating Africa-inspired prints designed by Nigerian native Onyii Brown (2-3 pm); music by DJ Flash Gordon Parks (3-4 pm); and a presentation by Mike Frost, a photographer and graphic designer who has defined the image and branding of rap and hip hop albums in Texas and beyond (4-5 pm). "Mickalene Thomas: Waiting on a Prime-Time Star" features paintings, photographs, collages, prints, and mixed-media works that explore the artist’s complex vision of female sexuality, identity, and power.
