Art League Houston is excited to present "The Loft", a special project space at the Houston Fine Art Fair featuring installations and performances by Mat Kubo, Paul Middendorf and Randy Bolton.

Paul Middendorf will present "The Power Tower", a temporary site-specific installation is in the form of a deer stand-inspired structure. Part social gathering spot, and part back woods hangout, the structure welcomes weary art fair attendees. "The Power Tower" will feature new works and interdisciplinary ideas and will function as a self-sustaining interactive environment, where the artist will not only host interviews with visitors, exhibiting artists, curators and gallerists, but perform at various times through the duration of the fair. Hunt or Be Hunted, Bargain seekers, and deep woods animal trophy collectors and providers, the installation and environment combines the survivalist within all of us. "The Power Tower" is part of an ongoing site specific performative sculptural elements by the artist and will be shown for the first time through the ALH at the 2015 HFAF. The Power Tower is in collaboration with contributing artist Lina Dib, a new media artists living and working in Houston Texas.

Mat Kubo will present "No Talking, Just Typing", an on-going performance piece where HFAF fairgoer’s will be invited to sit across from the artist with a 1970's style typewriter and communicate with him in silence through an exchange of typewritten messages. This conceptual performance often allows participants to open up and share private details of their lives they wouldn’t in a causal conversation.

Randy Bolton will present "Today + Tomorrow", an innovative sculptural print installation that explores the interplay between narrative imagery and three-dimensional objects, as well as the conceptual notion of a sculptural print and an image/object multiple. "Today + Tomorrow" introduces a new kind of open-ended, associative narrative structure” says the artist “that allows for the possibility of the emergence of a new type of visual fiction – one constructed from a collection of metonymic fragments in which the many seemingly unconnected, unrelated images and objects represent parts of a larger, and not yet defined whole.”

Special thanks to Dean Liscum, Ann-Marie Tcholakian, Wayne Gilbert, Paul Hester, Gary Wasserman, Marc Schwartz, Ferdinand Andres and Nancy Wozny.
