In an ambitious view of where photography is headed, three-dimensional installations, video and cell phone imagery take their place among more than 25 lens-based works in the Houston Center for Photography Antennae exhibition opening April 27, 2007. The exhibition kicks off with a panel discussion on the mediated image in contemporary art at University of Houston´s Rockwell Pavilion, MD Anderson Library on April 24 at 7pm.
The exhibition deals with issues ranging from the human pain and violence of the Iraq war to the influence of colonial missionaries on African society and architecture. Other works explore the sexuality of milk and coffee, the euphoric value of "pink" and the culture of youth and beauty. Curated by Madeline Yale, Executive Director and Curator of HCP, Antennae features work by 10 artists or collaborative teams representing an international cross-section of contemporary lens-based art.
Antennae is made possible thanks to generous support from Rebecca Roof and Matt Cutts, the Norwegian Consulate General, University of Houston, and Houston Wine Merchant.
