Houston’s new, internationally-focused arts institution, the Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University, was built for creating collaborative works and presenting innovative, transdisciplinary experiences. Designed by renowned architect Michael Maltzan, the Moody fosters connections across disciplines. Spring 2018 marked not only the Moody's one-year birthday but also another season of dynamic programming. Exhibitions included Josiah McElheny’s monumental Island Universe installation depicting the big bang theory and Leo Villareal’s Particle Chamber. Pile the Wood High! celebrated generational influences and enduring connections among art students and their teachers as told through the work of Anna Helm, Lisa Lapinski, and Hirsch Perlman. Programs like the Moody’s signature Artist-in-Dialogue series and New Art / New Music concert series allowed visitors to learn more about the artist’s work and enjoy the gallery experience in new ways. Working with Open Dance Project, the Moody co-produced Dada Gert, an immersive dance theater performance created by local choreographer Annie Arnoult that transported audiences to Weimar-era Berlin.
