This exhibition is curated by Texas Christian University’s graduate level Art History students: Phoebe Grace Adams, Emma Fletcher, Paulina Martín, Kim Phan Nguyen, and Sarah Webb. 
“On Display” presents a selection of twenty works on paper from the TCU Permanent Art Collection that explore the broad concept of performance. “Performance” here encompasses literal theatrical performance as well as metaphorical performance, such as labor, religion, or femininity; each concept in turn addresses the importance of audience and participation. The selection of artwork in this exhibition represents many different cultural ideas about performance, with works from Texas, Hungary, Japan, Mexico, and more.

On January 21st, from 5:30-6:30pm, the curators will lead a guided tour of selected pieces in the exhibition, followed by a performance by the International Leadership of Texas youth guitar ensemble.

Jones’s tactile, depth-driven, nonrepresentational paintings that reveal and revel in the artist’s process and his relationship with the materials. “I’m making things that speak to me and that reflect on my aesthetic and my soul,” remarks Jones, who juxtaposes the formal with the organic and the personal with the universal to create quiet, contemplative microenvironments. To achieve this, he reduces subject matter to its formal elements, highlighting the vastness of simplicity.
