The FOMO Factory Immersive Pop-Up

WHEN: Friday 10:00am, Saturday 10:00am, Sunday 11:00am

WHERE:  The Galleria, 5085 Westheimer Rd., Houston, TX 77056, Get Directions >

COST:  $18-$28; free for children under 3

DETAILS:  The FOMO Factory will host an immersive exhibit filled with fantastical sets from iconic childhood moments. Visitors will shed their identity at the door as they shake off their worries and choose their new silly nickname before entering a fantastical world featuring 17 immersive rooms. In addition to FOMO’s now-iconic Birthday Room with its giant cake and Playground with rainbow seesaw, the Houston installation will introduce nine new concepts. In the Science Lab visitors can don a lab coat and goggles to conduct weird experiments, snuggle into a tent to tell ghost stories in the Summer Camp Room, or grab a giant marker and draw on the walls of the Coloring Book Room.

Unlike some immersive spaces, which operate much like a self-serve photo studio, The FOMO Factory specializes in offering an experience and not merely photo backdrops. The journey taps all five senses by including a theatrical staff, smells piped into rooms, a retro soundtrack, and even tastes of childhood. The FOMO Factory is located at the Houston Galleria in Suite 4710 on the mall’s third floor.

Art League Houston presents “Flicker Futures,” “So It Will Be,”Ubuntu: I am because we are,” and “Sustainable Lifeguard Chair Chicken Coop (SLICK)” opening reception

WHEN:  Friday 6:00pm

WHERE:  Art League of Houston, 1953 Montrose Blvd., Houston, TX 77006, Get Directions >

COST:  Admission is free

DETAILS: Art League Houston presents four new exhibits:

    Flicker Futures is a three-part analog-digital installation by the artist team Bill Brown and Sabine Gruffat based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This exhibition is comprised of a series of analog-digital operations that recontextualize and build on current discourses surrounding the idea of the film frame, screen, and projector.

    So It Will Be is an exhibition of watercolor and ink on paper drawings by Houston based artist Daniel Heimbinder. Recognized for his monumental works on paper, Heimbinder depicts a complex, apocalyptic world with a meticulous and scrutinizing eye. His works are visually arresting and intellectually stimulating in their Bosch-like detail, telling a dystopian story of humanity where time and place are secondary to the narrative that unfolds.

    Ubuntu: I am because we are is an installation by Bronx, New York based artist Ahmed Tijay Mohammed (Tijay Mohammed). Ubuntu (uu-boon-tuu) explores the vital and significant role of women, especially the lives of immigrant women, whose daily labor and work, necessary to their families and livelihood, often goes unnoticed. In this sense, Ubuntu is a group portrait, celebrating the familial and societal impact of their lives and work.

    Sustainable Lifeguard Chair Chicken Coop (SLICK) is a new, interactive work by Houston based artist Kasey Short, funded in part by the 2019 Support for Artists and Creative Individuals Grant from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance. This project and site-specific installation underscore the artist’s interest in creative sustainability, society and consumerism.

Following the opening reception, these exhibits will be on display until July 20.
