PUBLIC OPENING “Gabriel Lester: Odeon” at Blaffer Art Museum

May 17 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


MAY 17 – AUGUST 11, 2024: On view at Blaffer Art Museum, “Gabriel Lester: Odeon” responds to Houston, its fossil fuel industry, and its incubation of NASA through his series of experimental installations and kinetic sculptures.

This is this preeminent European artist’s first U.S. solo exhibition. Lester has gained an international standing for his art, performance, and film as well as his dynamic public art installations, and across the span of his decades-long career, he has developed a cinematic lens through which to see and imagine the world. For this exhibition, Lester is most interested in the interplay between light and shadow, as well as the seen and unseen as elements intertwined. It pierces heavy, weighted geometries with the delightful, if perplexing magic of discovery.

Gabriel Lester (b. 1972), is a inventor, visual artist and filmmaker. His works consist of spatial installations, video installations, sculptures, performances, and short films.
