Aurora at Fotofest
If you didn't know already, Aurora's talented curator, Mary Magsamen, is a well known artist in her own right. Her and her husband, Stephan Hillerbrand, form the video art duo Hillerbrand and Magsamen and have a nation-wide exhibition history including exhibitions at the Butler Institute of American Art, the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia and being accepted into the Ann Arbor Film Festival multiple times. They are currently presenting four new videos in the Houston FotoFest exhibition titled, "4 Place Setting." The show runs from March 12-April 10 and the opening reception is April 1st from 6-8pm at the Spacetaker Gallery, 2101 Winter Street.
Magsamen is doing double duty for Fotofest as she has also curated the Aurora Fotofest Screening entitled "Co-Existing and Co-llaborating," featuring six collaborative teams of media artists including Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Darrin Martin and Jamil Hellu, Potter Belmar Labs, Duke and Battersby, Voshart and Humphries and Dana and Travis Hanmer.
