Space is not the final frontier. In fact, it’s just the beginning, at least in the Large Gallery at the McKinney Avenue Contemporary this month. Hosting seven current artists-in-residence at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Core program, the MAC presents Of Other Spaces, a collaborative exhibition featuring new and previously exhibited work including video, photography, collage, assemblage and installation to examine the philosophical role of artistic space as it links diverse artistic expressions and practices. The Square Gallery also features a collaboration in home•less•bound, an exhibition by Robert Mateo Diago with Willie Baronet and Cristella Medrano using installations, sculptures and photography to create a safe and honest environment in which to examine our emotions, prejudices and hopes with regard to the homeless. Similarly, Terry Hays’ Irreversible Change in the New Works Space utilizes models for theatrical set designs to depict the desolation of natural disasters and their tragic aftermaths. The MAC invites you for an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday at 3120 McKinney Ave., and you can view this diverse amalgamation through July 7. Visit the-mac.org for more details.
