Writing Towards Reflection

A Creative Exploration of McGovern Lake


As writers and artists, we all need to make time to recharge our creative energies. This fall, step away from your desk and practice fresh ways of looking, thinking, and recording landscapes both internal and external, and refill your creative well thought this immersive walking investigation of McGovern Lake in Houston’s Hermann Park. Although the lake may have artificial origins, it has been transformed by a wealth of evolving ecological forces: from Muscovy ducks to channel catfish to honeybees. In many ways, McGovern Lake embodies the interplay between nature and nurture—one of several themes we will explore over the course of the session, all of which are linked by an overarching focus on reflection. What does it mean to see oneself seeing, for instance? How can image shape understanding? We will explore these questions and more through a combination of independent and collective writing exercises.

Sharing your work is always optional. Facilitation will be in English, but you should feel free to write in any language.

REGISTRATION: $45
MAX. PARTICIPANTS: 12

The Rabbit Hunt by Ivete Lucas and Patrick Bresnan


 The Rabbit Hunt

By Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas

At Rice Media Center November 8 | 6-8 PM

Opening reception:  6:00 PM

Screening of short film: 6:30 PM


"The Rabbit Hunt" is a multimedia exhibition by filmmakers Patrick Bresnan and Ivete Lucas opening at the Rice Media Center Nov. 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibition will be followed by the opening of the Houston Cinema Arts Society’s Film Festival, now in its 10th year.


The Rice Media Center gallery will showcase a combination of production stills of the award-winning short “The Rabbit Hunt” in addition to an alternate version of the film, re-edited by Lucas, playing on a continuous loop on a mounted monitor while the exhibition is on view. A screening of the award-winning documentary short will begin at 6:30 p.m. Bresnan and Lucas will be working with Professor Geoff Winningham of the Visual and Dramatic Arts Department at Rice University to bring this show to campus. 


"The Rabbit Hunt" was filmed in Pahokee, Florida, a predominately African American and Hispanic community of 6,000 residents. The filmmakers portray the story of a group who recognize the advantages when farmers work their fields: 17-year-old Chris and his family hunt rabbits in the sugarcane fields of the Florida Everglades on the weekends during the harvest season. While watching the scenes unfold, one feels as if they’re part of the action –  and the family – as the excitement mounts and concludes with the reaping of rewards.  


Shot by Bresnan and edited by Lucas, “The Rabbit Hunt” has received numerous awards. Their latest documentary short, “Skip Day” recently won the Illy best short film award at the Quinzaine Des Realisateurs (Directors Fortnight) section of the 2018 Cannes film festival. The filmmakers will be present at the Rice Media Center on Nov. 8 for a brief gallery talk during the exhibition opening followed by a Q&A session post-screenings. Together, the filmmakers comprise their own independent film and video art company, Otis Lucas, in which Lucas serves as writer, editor and co-producer while partner Bresnan acts as cameraman, cinematographer and co-producer.


"The Rabbit Hunt" exhibition at the Rice Media Center precedes the official opening of the Houston Cinema Arts Festival (HCAF), which begins with the screening of “Skip Day” at 8 p.m. A short introduction ahead of the screening will commence at 7:30 p.m. and the evening will conclude with a screening of “Citizen Blue” followed by a Q&A session with Bresnan and Lucas.


The HCAF’s scheduled events at Rice Media Center will also include a virtual reality interactive experience located on the second floor of the Rice Media Center. Queerskins” is a seated experience for Oculus Touch that tells the story of a young gay physician, long estranged from his Catholic family in rural Missouri, who dies of AIDS in 1990. The visitor is seated behind Sebastian's mother and father as they take a magical realist journey down a memory lane to the cemetery where he lies buried. Visitors get to know Sebastian through the drama unfolding in intimate proximity in the front seat and by interacting with artifacts from his life: a box of personal belongings that changes over the course of the journey.


The virtual reality installation will be open to the public and available throughout the weekend. 


The Rabbit Hunt exhibition will be on view at Rice Media Center Gallery through December 14, 2018. Operating hours: M-F, 10am-5pm

BOX 13 ArtSpace Exhibitions, December 1, 2018 - February 2, 2019

713-533-8692

BOX 13 ArtSpace is pleased to present three exhibitions opening December 1, 2018, 7 - 9 PM. On view in the Front BOX, the exhibition From the Treehouse was born upon artist Elisabeth Mladenov’s first contact with the Houston environment – having settled into what she describes as a tree house next to the Menil – as she shed control over both process and result in her work through the use of automatic painting techniques. The exhibition Earthly Bodies: The Houston Brick Archive in the Back BOX highlights a large collection of bricks salvaged from sites around Houston by artist Alexander Squier/Fondren Project, presenting an “archaeological theater” – a multifaceted research project that combines sculpture, maps, and other documents focusing on the physical qualities and histories of the bricks, which serve as a metaphor for change and for people, their migrations, and the diverse fabric of the world. In the installation Neither Here Nor There in the Window BOX, Jasmine Zelaya explores the loss and gain and sense of insider vs. outsider of her experience as a daughter of immigrants, raised to assimilate, and as that of a woman of color with an adopted culture, in collaboration with New Orleans based artist Jacob Reptile.

The exhibitions continue through February 2, 2019. An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2019, from 7 - 9PM at BOX 13 ArtSpace, 6700 Harrisburg, Houston, TX 77011.
