Great review of Houston’s Free Press Summerfest!

Sorry for the delay, the past week has been one long hangover. That wasn’t helped by a pesky cold I caught over the weekend. I’m not gonna point fingers, but I only shared my Camelback with one person, you know who you are. Luckily, I remember most of the weekend, so here’s how it went down. There’s a lot, so if you want to just look at the pretty pictures or ctrl+F your favorite band, that’s cool.
Saturday started with Buxton, which were pretty awesome. They made me think of a Texas version of Delta Spirit, and made me a little frustrated with myself for not discovering this local band before.
Archduchess Maria Christina of Austria, Queen of Spain.
Oh god, her waist. I can’t imagine the pain…
” If a single image in the Summer Exhibition stands for the show as a whole, it is Chris Levine’s Lightness of Being. In 2004, Levine made a holo-gramic portrait of the Queen. One of the test shots for the work showed HM flinching at the flash, and Levine has reproduced this, possibly treasonously, as a giclee print. Never mind Annigoni or Freud: Lightness of Being is the greatest portrait yet of Elizabeth II,”
