DATE: Mon, November 19, 2018

TIME: 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM CST

LOCATION: Aurora Picture Show, 2442 Bartlett Street, Houston, TX 77098

Each year, Aurora Picture Show honors an artist who has exhibited extraordinary originality in the field of moving image art. The honoree of the 18th annual Aurora Award is acclaimed Swiss video artist Pipilotti Rist, who will be in attendance for the evening’s cocktails, dinner, screening, and award presentation.

She will be presented a unique award created in appreciation by Houston artist JooYoung Choi. Chaired by Lane and Bob Schultz, this event both promotes awareness of non-traditional media arts and supports Aurora’s year-round programs.

It’s a great honor to be asked by Aurora Picture Show to create this piece. Monday night I will be attending the dinner to present this mysterious piece to Pipolotti Rist. My husband Trenton Doyle Hancock will be my guest for the award dinner. We are both incredibly excited to celebrate Rist and the Aurora Picture Show. -JooYoung Choi
