adidas Basketball and CAMH Present the First Playable Basketball Court in an Art MuseumDesigned by artist Trenton Doyle Hancock.
In celebration of the NCAA Men’s Final Four arriving in the city, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston and adidas Basketball present CAMH COURT, the first-ever playable basketball court in an art museum. Commissioned to design the basketball court, backboards, and basketballs is locally-based artist Trenton Doyle Hancock.
The main court is designed to conform to CAMH”s Brown Foundation Gallery’s parallelogram shape while matching the dimensions of a regulation court. Displaying Hancock’s vivid imagination are striped Bringback characters and bright illustrations which are spread all along the floors, walls, and entrance.
Throughout the exhibition, various programs and events will be hosted at the venue with support from adidas Basketball. All activations will culminate in the CAMH Ball on Apri 29 in which a sneakers auction will take place.
“Hancock’s shows have continually been some of the most celebrated in the institution’s almost 75-year history. His work creates new worlds for audiences to explore, and CAMH COURT offers an extension of this, again welcoming audiences into a space of fantasy and play,” writes the show description.
CAMH COURT will be on view from March 18 to April 27. More details can be found here.
