Art League Houston is pleased to present PROOF, a dynamic multimedia exhibition by Studio Enertia: a collaborative project by Houston performer and composer Lisa E. Harris, and Pittsburgh-based artist Alisha B. Wormsley. The exhibition features a selection of sculptural installation, performance art, video and photography that bring together five major bodies of work all exploring the artists ongoing interest in themes of the African diaspora, social justice, and urban mythology.
PROOF transforms the gallery into an incubator-like space; where the artists will experiment with combining individual narratives that reference global tradition, nostalgia and futurist dreams, as a way to incite new dialogues on contemporary issues impacting people of the African diaspora. The exhibition is designed to create an immersive environment where the artworks are meant to be experienced in context with each other rather than as individual units.
Taking place in Montreal,
The HTMlles is an international biennial festival that brings together artists, scholars, and activists who are passionate about critical engagement with new technologies from a feminist perspective. Based on a specific theme, each edition addresses urgent socio-political questions by pushing the boundaries of artistic and feminist practices.
