"Subject Plural: Crowds in Contemporary Art"
2001-03-10 until 2001-04-29
Contemporary Arts Museum Houston
Houston, TX, USA

Although the past decade has been characterized by a focus on subjective experience as the filter of a common reality, images and concepts of the collective, of the amorphous crowd, its typical location, expressions and meanings have been equally dealt with. The idea of the group, the collective, or the audience seems to have changed with respect to the past.

This exhibition explores the existent imagery of the crowd, looking for a contemporary definition of the social experience. The works will include images of crowds, as well as works that happen with a crowd, artists that address groups or that propose images of the crowded places we enjoy nowadays. Subject Plural: Crowds in Contemporary Art is organized by the Contemporary Arts Museum and is curated by Associate Curator Paola Morisani. An illustrated catalogue will accompany the exhibition.

Artists included in the exhibition are Francis Als, Stephen Andrews, Vanessa Beecroft, Andrea Bowers, Kim Sooja, Nikki S. Lee, Glenn Ligon, Paul Pfeiffer, Michelangelo Pisotletto, Matthew Sontheimer, Beat Streuli, Do-Ho Suh, Grazia Toderi, Zhang Huan and Zhuang Hui.
