Re:Houston is an exhibition about rebuilding, remembering, rejuvenating, and reinventing. Houston. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the whole world saw the destruction, resilience, sacrifice, and sadness of Houston. As the city works on the difficult task of arising from that disaster. Re:Houston gives artists from all over the globe, an opportunity to commemorate those places within this great city that they love, remember those places that have been lost or damaged, and celebrate the heroism of Houston.
The exhibition will be displayed on the Popwalk phone application. This app allows artists, musicians and performers the ability to virtually exhibit video, animation, music or performance in specific geographic locations. Using Popwalk, artists will be able to exhibit their works of art in those corners of the city that they want to remember. Artists and performers will be able to celebrate those specific corners of the city that that they love, commemorate the lost or damage parts, and reimagine a better, stronger Houston, after the flood.
Popwalk will act as a catalyst for artists to commemorate this great city and for people to come back, remember, celebrate, heal, and imagine Houston. Popwalk will become a tool for celebrating the city, and for bringing people back to remember.
