these canvases at Art League was both profound and moving — the show is sold out except for one remaining drawing, with its most epic work, Untitled, 2020, going to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, where it has pride of place in the new Kinder Building. This body of work by Lowe represents a distillation of thousands of hours of conversation around a domino table, where ideas of community and exhibitions and programming were hatched. The paintings also resemble blocks of neighborhoods, portending that beauty and history and, above all, the people who inhabit this place can be seen and elevated to the importance they deserve. Muñoz's solo is a fitting pendant show with Lowe's. The works by this Whitney Biennial-exhibited talent (1991) speak resoundingly of now, yet in many cases were created in the '80s and '90s: Celia Álvarez Muñoz COURTESY THE ARTIST COURTESY THE ARTIST Rick Lowe's Untitled, 2020, at the artist's studio, shown in process. The epic painting was acquired by the MFAH for its new Kinder Building. Project Row Houses, Third Ward, Houston text-based pieces, many incorporating photography; elaborate artist books that are more like a cabinet of curiosities with their beautifully honed carrying cases; wall works pairing text, imagery, and humor; and a sense of incessant activism. This feminist voice, raised in El Paso, speaks with a clarion call via her installations and images for the right of inclusion — for the Latin community, LGBTQ people, and women. The Art League's Lifetime Achievement honor follows Muñoz's selection for the seminal 2017-2018 international traveling exhibition organized by the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles: "Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960-85."
