In 2003 the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presented Matthew Richie: Proposition Player, the artist’s first major museum exhibition. Proposition Player featured artworks created in 2002 and 2003, including a series of major installations made specifically for the soaring interiors of the CAMH. The exhibition highlighted Matthew Ritchie’s complex and imaginary story of the history of the universe as told through his monumental yet intricate paintings, drawings, sculpture, and digital animation.

“I think the most amazing fact I learned was that they have a part of the brain that we don’t have—a part that we can’t even identify. This suggests that they sense, understand, and even feel more than we do. It still blows me away to think about it.”
