Okay Mountain Acquired by Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (TX)

The gallery is thrilled to announce the acquisition of “Tattoo Flash”(2011) by Okay Mountain for the permanent collection of Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (TX).

The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, houses an encyclopedic collection of more than 65,000 works of art created throughout the world, from antiquity to the present. Works from the MFAH collections fill the galleries year-round with art embracing every era of history across the globe.

Okay Mountain is a nine member artist collective based in Austin, Texas. Formed in 2006 as an artist-run alternative gallery space, the group has exhibited their drawing, video, sound, and performance projects throughout the United States and in Mexico City, and has been widely recognized for its “inventive construction, loving attention to detail and keen-eyed connoisseurship.” Okay Mountain repackages, reconstitutes, and rekindles our consumerist desires with a sardonic edge. Their installations and multi-media assemblage works mimic the stock vernacular of our communal materialism, yet tweak them just enough to reveal our superficial insecurities and convictions.
