Witness the evolution of artistic process in working studio spaces during Artists on Site at Asia Society Texas Center through Sunday, January 24, 2021.

In response to the extraordinary challenges facing artists in 2020, Asia Society Texas Center has invited four Houston-based Black, Indigenous, People of Color artists to utilize working studio spaces during December and January, allowing the public to view the artists’ ideas, research and evolution of their works as it takes place.

Visitors to Asia Society Texas Center can watch the featured artists—Ahra Cho, Laura Drey, Brandon Tho Harris and Royal Sumikat—as they work in media ranging among painting, photography, video, sculpture, performance and installation.

In addition, free virtual webcast conversations with the artists will take place in January, allowing the public to engage deeper with the creative process on display.

Social Distancing & COVID-19

Businesses and organizations in Houston have opened under modified protocols, following guidelines administered by local health officials, the State of Texas and CDC. At this time, guidance from experts urges people to continue wearing face masks when in public spaces, practice social distancing of at least six feet, limit your touching of surfaces and frequently use hand sanitizer or soap and water to keep your hands clean.

Although vaccines have been approved and distribution has begun, supplies are still limited. Health officials have severely cautioned that it will take until late spring 2021 before the U.S. might be able to expect a level of herd immunity. In the meantime, masks are strongly advised to help curb the increasing spread of COVID-19 this winter.

Before heading out, take time to familiarize with your destination’s requirements or restrictions at this moment, and be sure to contact them ahead of time with any questions or concerns.
