'TX 13' is a Jumble of Good Intentions

Rebecca Carter, 'Wrong Perspective with the Dirty Rainbow'


Conroe artist Adela Andea’s Primordial Garden, made with netting, plastic and LED lights in the corridor to Blue Star’s bathrooms, offers a safe haven from all the noise. Miriam Ellen Ewers of Denton promises better days with her large-scale horn of plenty, Ideal Shelter.

Uniting the state’s contemporary art community under a single banner is commendable, but building a working infrastructure of galleries, museums, curators, collectors and critics that the state’s artists can engage with to sustain a career is going to take a lot more than good intentions. Big Medium, the non-profit behind the Texas Biennial, has a useful website with links to artists’ sites and a comprehensive calendar of events, but mostly it’s promoting what’s already out there and not adding much new to the information pool.
