“I Still Believe in Tomorrow: Contemporary Video from Asia”

Contemporary Asia’s recent cultural and artistic eruption — and the privilege and pain associated with it — is the topic of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s “I Still Believe in Tomorrow: Contemporary Video from Asia,” which features nine videos by five young Asians at the forefront of their art. Three of the videos, which will play in a loop in the Brown Foundation galleries, come from Chinese artist Cao Fei, who tells the stories of those caught up in China’s rapid development, from teens engaging in cosplay to factory workers hoping for different jobs. Vietnamese artist Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba created two memorial videos for people displaced by the Vietnam War, and Shimabuku goes for humor as he takes an octopus on tour around Japan. It’ll get you thinking about urbanization, modernization and that long-distance ticket you’ve got to buy. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 12:15 to 7 p.m. Sundays. Through January 11. 1001 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-639-7300 or visit www.mfah.org. $7.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 30. Continues through Jan. 30, 2008
