As photography continues to grow into its own in the landscape of fine art, artists have begun to push the boundaries of the traditional two-dimensional form. This extra dimensionality ranges from pieces that are printed and mounted using unique materials to sculpture-like installations. Rather than contain themselves within standard frames on blank walls, the pieces that comprise “Relief” seek to shape and be shaped by their environment, creating immersive spaces for artistic appreciation. Like the ancient art of relief sculpture that came before, the universes created by these photographs project from, yet still belong to, their canvas.
These immersive universes created from photo pieces also act as an aesthetic, if momentary, reprieve from the day-to-day world of panic, confusion, and uncertainty. These respites, these reliefs, are necessary from time to time if we are to affect the change we want to see. Anything can happen when we step into the world of the artist and see through their eyes

Experience Flatland Gallery's first every intimate dance performance this Friday & Saturday. In beautiful handmade white linen jumpers, dancers Jacquelyne Boe, Brit Wallis & Siri Cyan will move to original music by Jeremy Nuncio.

Four films are projected onto the four walls of a gallery. Each film follows a Palestinian resident of a refugee camp on the coast of Lebanon, walking from their dwelling to the sea. Along the way, they speak of history of the land, their arrival, and everyday life in the camp. Camp Pause is part of CounterCurrent17 festival, a free festival of performance, installations, and ideas presented by University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts. CounterCurrent is a festival of performance, installation, and ideas.
