Gabriel Lester: Odeon

May 17, 2024—August 11, 2024

The Blaffer Art Museum is proud to present the first solo museum exhibition in the United States of preeminent Dutch artist Gabriel Lester, who has gained an international standing for his art, performance, and film as well as his dynamic public art installations. Across his now decades-long career, Lester has developed a captivating cinematic lens through which to see and imagine the world – consistently locating wonder in the seemingly stolid and mundane. For this exhibition Lester is most interested in the interplay between light and shadow, as well as the seen and unseen, as he responds to Houston and the fossil fuel industry that so deeply sheathes the region.
