The Dinner Party | Video Installation
Please note, this event has expired.
Visual Artist Justin Kouri’s new video installation simultaneously casts films of Houstonians of starkly different backgrounds eating a three-course-meal in complete isolation – ultimately producing a virtual “dinner party.”
Mr. Kouri received the Support for Artists and Creative Individuals 2018-2019 grant sponsored by the Houston Arts Alliance. His project focuses on the immense diversity of Houston’s residents and its ongoing culinary renaissance. Mr. Kouri is filming 24+ Houstonians of starkly different ages and backgrounds eating three-course meals, uninterrupted, at a formal table settings in complete isolation.
Mr. Kouri will simultaneously cast the recordings on large monitors, arranged to insinuate people congregating around a communal table – ultimately forming a virtual “dinner party.” TheView more
