The well-wishers at the opening reception for “It Will All Happen Again,” Michael Sieben’s solo exhibition at the University of Texas’ Visual Arts Center, represented different but important parts of his life.
They included the artist’s father, John Sieben, a math professor at Texas Lutheran University; Sieben’s wife, Allison Sands, and the couple’s 3-month-old daughter, Eve (3-year-old son River was home with a babysitter); and friends from Okay Mountain, the Austin-based artist collective that Sieben co-founded and that now has a national reputation for its often elaborate projects that gently skewer the conventions and absurdities of consumer culture.
