Contemporary Arts Museum Houston opening reception: More Real Than Reality Itself
More Real Than Reality Itself brings together single-channel, multi-channel and installation-based video works by four artists who breathe new life into the medium's familiar documentary parameters. Andrea Geyer, Camille Henrot, Laure Prouvost and A. L. Steiner use video as a vehicle to communicate their unique understandings of the world.
Their works expose video's capacity for poetry, its materiality and its ability to suggest alternative futures by reframing how we see the present. Through affecting emotional responses, their works offer us new ways to understand and inhabit the world we share.
The exhibition is organized by Dean Daderko, curator at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston.
