Encapsulating 143 exhibitions with illustrations of work by 77 of the over 800 artists who participated, Perspectives@25: A Quarter Century of New Art in Houston celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's Perspectives series (one of the first in the U.S. to focus on contemporary art developments). In this beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated book, art lovers learn about an important aspect of the history of the Houston contemporary art scene, while scholars gain insight into the history of the contemporary exhibition through a series of texts: essays, facts, reminiscences and anecdotes. Also included is a complete list of all artists who have exhibited their work at Perspectives, and an illustrated chronology documenting the series and its exhibitions.
