"From Above: Photographs of Houston by Alex S. MacLean"
2000-09-07 until 2001-01-14
Menil Collection
Houston, TX, USA

Twenty-five startling views of the city of Houston, taken from the perspective of Alex MacLean’s single-engine Cessna. From the Ship Channel to the suburban prairie, MacLean’s photographs reveal landscapes as abstract compositions, providing a vital perspective on the relationship between natural and manmade environments.

FROM ABOVE, curated by Susan Davidson of The Menil Collection and architect William F. Stern, of the Rice Design Alliance, brings an urgent visibility to local and national environmental issues. Alex MacLean’s photographs present a remarkably beautiful portrait of Houston from a vulnerable angle, notes Stern, a portrait that is at once abstractly rich, like a modern painting, and at the same time filled with critical comment.
