The Look Ahead: MacDougall, Pink in Winter, and the Continuum
Three events I have this day. Three events, I give to you. These events in Santa’s slay. These events, all bright and new.
Lee MacDougall at the Continental Club
As far as singer-songwriters go, this British musician has the potential to go the distance. Yeah, there are a lot of folksy story tellers doing similar things, but he’s got the work ethic and raw talent to conjure those deepest emotions that the majority of ‘em lack.

This Thursday, try something a little different. Ditch the work happy hour for art and generosity. With pink appetizers and the diverse jewelry, painting, glass-work, and photography of 12 different artists to peruse, you may just enjoy this more than your usual thing. Don’t forget, 10% of all proceeds will be donated to the Young Survival Coalition.

As part of its ARC Exhibition Series, Spacetaker presents iPerform, a performance-based exhibition and series of participatory events created by Houston’s newest performance art collective, Continuum, at Spacetaker’s ARC Gallery.
iPerformwill open with a public reception on Friday, August 26 from 7 to 10 p.m. during which the members of Continuum will display documentation of their work through video and photos, and share live performances that are an extension of this work. In addition to viewing the live performances, the audience will be able to interact with several performative installations and partake in a variety of participatory performances, including:
- Guided visualization/meditation
- Cleansing through ritualistic sweeping
- Confessing sins in exchange for an alcoholic beverage
- Preparing a “shoeulogy” for a shoe graveyard
- Making photocopies of random body parts for a wall collage
