TCVCA presents LOCII+O at ex ovo
"LOCII+O" (lots of cameras, images, inputs plus outputs) is an experimental installation and communal media event presented by the TCVCA* . Designed to function in a mutually coordinated manner, the installation invites collaboration in the form of live collage, commentary, and video processing. In concert with these various points of entry and output, performer Matthew Maher acts as our guide through classic action films, exploring their tropes and ruminating on themes of masculinity, the American landscape and its media apparatus. Special guests include Allison Klion, Tamara Johnson, Tino Ward, and Zak Loyd. TCVCA is a project by Trey Burns.

La L'aceate Loop Trail
La L’aceate Loop Trail in conjunction with the NEXT EXIT exhibition; named after the historic appellation for the neighborhood south of Singleton and east of Sylvan. As the show examines Dallas’s myths, landscape, and built environment - this trail brings you out of the gallery a for a brief walk along a guerrilla hiking trail framing the area immediately around the gallery. As you pass through easements and vacant lots, watch your feet, keep eyes open, and your nose clean.
October 12 - December 14, 2019:
Over the course of several months, ex ovo’s Allison Klion and four local artists —Trey Burns, Harris Chowdhary, Finn Jubak, and Jonathan Molina-Garcia—engaged in a series of in-depth conversations about Dallas’s history, legibility, aspirations, and encrypted realities. The resulting exhibition consists of the manifested footnotes from these discussions and draws on shared research and development of ideas around Dallas’s myths, landscape, and the built environment. Next Exit ’s spatial relationship of encountering becomes part of this meaning. The exhibition design operates as a collaborative installation in which a supplemental “gallery infrastructure” — including viewing platforms and alcoves — permit access and passageway between artworks.
