Due to inclement weather, many were not able to make it out to the opening of The Longest Distance featuring new work by Austin artist, Hector Hernandez. The opening went on as scheduled but we're hosting a GRAND RE-OPENING this Friday, June 5th from 6:00 - 9:00 for those who were unable to join in on the fun.

This multimedia exhibition features site specific installations and photographs. Hernandez reconstructs our everyday surroundings that get lost in the momentum of our agenda, and brings them back to life. Commonly known for breaking down familiar perspectives, "The Longest Distance" certainly provides a breath of fresh air—generating new questions, and possibly new relationships to the world around us.

ARTIST STATEMENT:

My commute is about getting from point A to point B as efficiently as possible. However, the daily routine of commuting to and from work over time turns into visual white noise. The repetition of treading the same landscape loses its clarity as trees melt into a green blur.

What if I changed the goal of the trip? What if I focused on the journey and ignored the destination? Suddenly, objects, foliage, landmarks, previously ignored take on greater meaning and hold my interest longer. Attempting to answer these questions generated new questions and subsequently new artwork, ultimately leading to the work for this exhibition titled, The Longest Distance.
