Station Museum of Contemporary Art wishes to announce the following six solo exhibitions by artists Suha Shoman, Charif Benhelima, Santiago Forero, Martin Zet, Ed Wilson and Elliot Wolfson. These exhibitions will open on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at 7 p.m. with music & refreshments.
Two films about Palestine by noted artist Suha Shoman deal with critical issues concerning the Israeli occupation of her homeland.
Charif Benhelima’s photographic project, Welcome to Belgium, illuminates the plight of Arab immigrants in Europe. An essay by noted Belgium painter, Luc Tuymans, describes Charif’s project as “a testimony, beginning at the beginning and covering a research period lasting nine years.”
Santiago Forero presents a singularly perceptive perspective on life in the United States through his cryptic photographs. Santiago is a graduate student from Colombia attending the University of Texas.
Saluto Romano by Czech artist Martin Zet is a series of photographs portraying himself as an object within various environments. This is his ongoing attempt to find freedom and his true identity in a post-communist world.
Houston artist Ed Wilson’s steel sculptures are based on photographs that he took of concentration camps in Germany. They convey moral outrage at the same time as they represent his powerful sculptural identity. His photographs will be exhibited along with his sculptures.
The Station Museum is also presenting a group of mystical paintings by Elliot Wolfson who, in addition to being an artist, is one of the world’s most important authorities on the Kabbalah, understood as esoteric teachings concerning about mysticism and nature of the universe.
These exhibitions will be on view: March 13, 2010 – May 30, 2010
