Cauleen Smith: We Already Have What We Need
On view July 15–October 3, 2021
Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH)
Houston, Texas

Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition “Cauleen Smith: We Already Have What We Need,” which presents works by the acclaimed Los Angeles-based artist, and features lm, video, sculpture, textiles, installation, and drawing. Organized by MASS MoCA, the exhibition has been modified for CAMH’s site-specific presentation which includes a new installation and recent work in neon, on view in the Museum’s Brown Foundation Gallery July 15 through October 3, 2021.

For over three decades, Smith (b. 1967, Riverside, California) has harnessed acts of imagination and the power of revolutionary thinking to envision a better world. The title of the exhibition—and the expansive video installation at its center—suggests that, in fact, “We Already Have What We Need.”
