CTGME is an experimental exhibition at the University Museum of Texas Southern University, featuring installation, performance and mixed media works by select Houston artists. This show has been initiated by artist Robert Pruitt but is a highly collaborative venture between all the artists involved. CTGME is pulled from a lyric of Hip Hop artist Brother J of X-Clan, and conjures up images of Hannibal and his elephants riding to meet the Romans in Battle. The title serves to reference historical ideas of value, migration, and shifting concepts of power. To that end this exhibition will attempt to replicate components from early 20th century World Fairs. Each participating artists creates their own pavilion showcasing innovative ideas of power, identity, and worth.

Caroline Plantation will be the first attempt at a full scale reproduction of a slave plantation. Loosely based on the Wavering Place Plantation located in South Carolina, the piece will feature over 3000 legos.

VALUE$ - Project Row Houses: Round 36
The removal of the words from picket signs during civil rights marches leaves the content of the sign up to the imagination of the viewer. It also forces you to focus more on the people holding the blank signs. The Texas School Board has released a history textbook that has omitted, and twisted many historical facts. The idea of the picket signs being blank is a visual description of what the Texas School Board has done.
The artwork was selected as a finalist in the 2011 Bombay Saphire/Artisan Series
