This Friday, Foto Relevance presents 1000+1, a summer group show featuring selections from Kalee Appleton, Joana P. Cardozo, Mark Chen, Paul-André Larocque, Noelle Mason, Karen Navarro, and Krista Svalbonas. Celebrate photography when you make plans to attend on August 9th!
When thinking about photography, an old adage often comes to mind: a picture is worth a thousand words. To say this is to recognize photography as an inherently communicative practice, to acknowledge the ways in which a singular image can convey a meaning when language falls short.
Engaging in this conversation, 1000+1 highlights seven contemporary artists who expand our expectations of photography through the use of photo-based techniques in conjunction with alternative art forms such as sculpture, painting, textiles, and writing. The exhibition showcases the versatility and malleability of photography, suggesting that one future narrative for the medium lies in its intrinsic ability to accommodate and engage seamlessly with other methods of expression.
Since 2016, Foto Relevance co-founders Geoffrey Koslov and Bryn Larsen have focused on the exhibition and acquisition of museum quality contemporary fine art photography and photography-based work. Opening with an inaugural show as part of FotoFest 2018 Biennial’s Participating Spaces, Foto Relevance quickly established itself as one of the leading galleries in the region devoted to the art of contemporary photography.
Foto Relevance is a proud member of the Houston Art Gallery Association (HAGA). The gallery is located in the historic Audubon District of Montrose in Houston, Texas in close proximity to the Museum District, The Menil, and the Houston Center for Photography.
