"Unspeakably human or unimaginably bestial?" Opening

Artwork by Karen Lederer

The three-person exhibit at Anya Tish Gallery, presented in conjunction with PrintHouston, takes its name from Yahia Lababidi’s poem What do animals dream? and like the creatures Lababidi seeks to understand, the artists – JooYoung Choi, Gao Hang and Karen Lederer – seek to bring them to life, through the lens of pop culture and today's digital aesthetics. Choi, whose work is also currently displayed at the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, contributes sculpture influenced by children’s television shows like Pee-wee’s Playhouse and Sesame Street. Gao paints his fluorescent-hued predators in portrait, more reminiscent of human than wild animal, and Lederer’s bold, Instagram-cropped monoprints favor patterns, consumer products, art history references and, of course, fish and reptiles. The exhibit runs through July 15.
