Texas & Pacific Station, Fort Worth, Texas
Exhibition: July 20th, 6 – 9 pm
T&P Tavern, West Lancaster Avenue, Fort Worth, TX
HOMECOMING! presents its new series of video art exhibitions entitled In-Transit. Moving out of the standard gallery setting and into various public locations throughout the DFW area, In-Transit will showcase video works from regional, national and international artists.
Each installment of the series facilitates a site-specific location as catalyst for video selection and will create an atmosphere that integrates works exhibited, locale, and architectural form with viewer experience. In-Transit will generate a relaxed forum for viewing and discussion, while reaching out to a wider public audience.
The first installment in the series, Station Domination, will be held at the Texas & Pacific train station in Fort Worth, Texas on July 20th 2012. The Trinity Railway Express will enact as both a physical and metaphorical link between Dallas and Fort Worth art scenes, as exhibition visitors are encouraged to arrive via train. Thusly, the video selections showcased at the T & P station correlate to modes of transportation and connectivity.
The train becomes not only a matter of convenience and experience, but also a function of art itself. Fort Worth based artist Terri Thornton will use the train in a live performance / video, which will act in conjunction with her upcoming exhibition where is the power.
HOMECOMING! is also pleased to announce that artist Koki Tanaka, who was recently selected to represent Japan in the 2013 Venice Biennale, will be included in the exhibition.
