Tell me everything, as you remember it.
A group exhibition curated by alumna Leona Scull-Hons (MFA 2004)
Opening Saturday, October 17th, the Creative Research Laboratory welcomes Tell me everything, as you remember it, a curatorial project by University of Texas, Department of Art and Art History alumna, Leona Scull-Hons (MFA 2004). Showcasing the recent work of 10 artists from across the country, Scull-Hons presents a group exhibition that explores the tenuous lines of communication that exist between us all. These artists conjure and thus examine the feelings of human connections or the lack thereof.
Featured artists include Bas Jan Ader, Myranda Bair, Susan Chen, Kate Gilmore, Justin Goldwater, David Horvitz, John William Keedy, Jason Bailer Losh, John Mata, Stephanie McMahon.
Join us on Thursday, October 29th, 7–9 pm for the film, Here Is Always Somewhere Else, a documentary about the life and work of Bas Jan Ader. In 1975 Ader disappeared under mysterious circumstances at sea in what would have been the smallest boat ever to cross the Atlantic. As seen through the eyes of fellow emigrant filmmaker Rene Daalder, the picture becomes a sweeping overview of contemporary art films as well as an epic saga of the transformative powers of the ocean.
The Creative Research Laboratory (CRL) presents a year-round schedule of exhibitions, featuring work by students and faculty at The University of Texas at Austin. The CRL is located in East Austin at 2832 East Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, inside Flatbed World Headquarters. There is ample free parking and bus service available on Capitol Metro's Route 18. The activities of the Department of Art and Art History and the Creative Research Laboratory are free and open to the public.
