Awaken spiritually with a performance by Autumn Knight at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston on Saturday, January 30, 2016.

Featuring a series of rituals, actions, and performed sound, Houston-based artist Autumn Knight will perform her 2013 performance piece titled WALL in conjunction with CAMH’s Galveston-centric group exhibition, Island Time.

Fittingly WALL finds Knight spiritually re-imagining the concept of Jerusalem’s prayer site, the Wailing Wall, with the Galveston Seawall as something much more than a hurricane barrier.

Seating is limited for this event which is free and open to the public.
