On Repeat is an upcoming art exhibit that focuses heavily on patterns and repetition, showcasing the work of artists from Houston and beyond over multiple generations.

Taking its name from a song by the band LCD Soundsystem, the exhibit weaves together work by established artists and young, upcoming ones, who work in a wide range of media — from painting, to matchboxes, to bed linens, to paper napkins.

The exhibit runs through Dec. 14 at Clarke & Associates, located at 301 East 11th St. in the Heights.

Houston Matters host Craig Cohen learns more from the curator of the exhibit, Raphael Rubinstein. He's a professor of art at the University of Houston.
