The Townsend Austin presents Mikel Rouse: "Hemisphere" opening reception
“Hemisphere” is a site-specific video installation designed for The Townsend by acclaimed artist Mikel Rouse. His installation for The Townsend was conceived after a number of preliminary visits to gauge the room atmosphere and décor. Images were chosen and adjusted to reflect various viewing positions within the space as well as the lighting environment in the room. The pictures consist of altered views offering a slightly skewed reflection of the commonplace. It is hoped that the effect will be one of moving paintings.
At the opening reception, guests will have the chance to speak with Rouse about this visually compelling piece and the inspiration behind his art. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through April 30.
