DiverseWorks presents L'esprit de l'escalier
Katrina Moorhead, “Donald Judd Box Used As A Shelf For An Adidas Box”, 2006. MDF, oil paint, mat board, vinyl, cardboard, gouache, paper, pencil, document, 30” x 67” x 10”. Collection of Julie Kinzelman & Christopher Tribble.

HOUSTON, TX.- DiverseWorks presents L’esprit de l’escalier, an exhibition featuring works by members of DiverseWorks’ Artist Board, on view June 29 – August 17, 2013. Artist Board members included in this group exhibition are Lucinda Cobley, Jamal Cyrus, Sasha Dela, Lydia Hance, Hank Hancock, Trenton Doyle Hancock, John Harvey, Maria Cristina Jadick, Courtney D. Jones, Eric Leshinsky, Gabriel Martinez, Lynne McCabe, Katrina Moorhead, Gene Morgan, Mari Omori, Aaron Parazette, Robert Pruitt, Leslie Scates, Hélène Schlumberger, Kellye Sanford, Kelly Sears, and Damon Smith, along with collaborators Parham Daghighi, Sandy Ewen, Zach Moser, jhon r. stronks, and June Woest.

The exhibition title, a French pun translated idiomatically as “staircase wit,” refers to the inevitable situation of finding oneself thinking of the perfect comeback to an argument too late. The retort, when removed from the context of its original instigation, has a tendency to lose its potency leading to incidences of regret and remorse. Through a wide variety of artistic strategies, the DiverseWorks Artist Board grapples with how words, events, or objects become dislocated or removed from their original context. The title provides the artists with a loose framework for the creation of new work (or the re-presentation of existing work) for this exhibition, which includes objects, text-works, moving imagepieces, as well as a series of performative and literary events.

Highlights include:

· An exterior wheat paste mural created by Otabenga Jones & Associates (Jamal Cyrus and Robert A. Pruitt) juxtaposing a police car with Barnett Newman’s Broken Obelisk

· An interactive zine-making station by Gene Morgan and Hank Hancock

· A series of alabaster objects from Trenton Doyle Hancock’s personal collection adorned with phrases about life, love, and happiness

· The re-presentation of Katrina Moorhead’s sculptural piece, Donald Judd Box Used As A Shelf for An Adidas Box, 2006

· A new wall painting by Aaron Parazette
