PUBLIC OPENING “Olivia Erlanger: If Today Were Tomorrow” at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

April 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW APRIL 20 – OCTOBER 27, 2024: “Olivia Erlanger: If Today Were Tomorrow” at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is the artist’s first solo museum presentation in the United States. Across an installation, a video, and a series of commissioned sculptures, Erlanger continues her decade-long investigation into what it means to call a planet home.

Informed by her interest in “closed worlds”—human-made, climate-controlled environments—the artist has produced all newly commissioned work. Erlanger is converting the gallery into a sculptural landscape comprising distinct yet interrelated zones: a set showcasing her short film Appliance (2024); dioramas of off-world landscapes and impossible architectures; illuminated planet sculptures; and a constellation of arrows piercing the Museum’s brutalist staircase.
