Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts says
Foodies, wine and beer aficionados, and cocktail lovers take heed! Directly following Luke Savisky's piece Ht/X, join us for a CounterCurrent Opening Night Party at OKRA Charity Saloon. Mix and mingle alongside festival artists, fellow patrons, and locally-minded Houstonians, drinks and light bites courtesy of the Mitchell Center.

Special thanks to media sponsor Local Houston Magazine.

Coinciding with the party at OKRA, Austin-based multimedia artist Luke Savisky returns to Houston with Ht/X, a live video spectacle on the underside of downtown Houston’s Allen’s Landing Bridge. This giant arch at once becomes a huge movie montage against the night sky; a watery reflection of the life along the river, a window through time and possibly even a passage to an inner world.

Savisky is known for transforming non-traditional spaces into immersive experiences that interact with and mesmerize audiences. In 2010, Savisky’s interactive installation E/x was projected onto four silos in Houston’s East End, igniting the city skyline with the bodies of audience members as they appeared to move and merge within a visually stunning montage.

Ht/X is presented in collaboration with Aurora Picture Show and Buffalo Bayou Partnership.

Come check out Ht/X anytime between 8:30pm and 10pm and then join us for a drink up the road at OKRA!
