May 11-July 15, 2017  -  REFUGEE Exhibition
Hosted by FotoFest International
Date: Thursday, May 11, 2017
Time: 6 PM - 8 PM
Location: FotoFest International, 2000 Edwards St, Houston, Texas 77007
FotoFest presents an important exhibition addressing the global refugee crisis.
FotoFest presents The Annenberg Space for Photography’s REFUGEE, May 11 – July 15, 2017 at Silver Street Studios, 2000 Edwards Street, Houston, TX 77007. It is the first presentation of the exhibition in the Southwest, and coincides with World Refugee Day, Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
FotoFest galleries are free and open to the public Wednesday - Saturday, 11am - 5pm, through July 15, 2017.
REFUGEE reflects the humanity at the heart of the crisis. Every day, tens of thousands of people across the globe flee their homes, uprooting their lives, to escape violence or persecution. It is most often a final act of desperation.
The numbers are staggering. One in every 122 people on Earth is a refugee. Globally, the total forcibly displaced from their home exceeds 65 million – the highest number ever recorded. Over half are children. It is a crisis that cannot be ignored.
Featuring five internationally acclaimed photographers especially commissioned to document the full range of the refugee experience:
Lynsey Addario
Omar Victor Diop
Graciela Iturbide
Martin Schoeller
Tom Stoddart
The photographers were supported by the UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
REFUGEE is curated by:
Patricia Lanza, Director of Talent & Content, The Annenberg Space for Photography
and Elisabeth Biondi, former Visual Editor of the New Yorker
The Exhibition is toured by Prodigy Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California

Hall of Ancient Egypt
Permanent Collection
Safely ensconced in the Sahara desert, and drawing its lifeblood from the river Nile, ancient Egyptian civilization flourished for more than three millennia. A quintessential example of what archaeologists call a primary civilization,” ancient Egypt did not rely on inspiration from others to develop its own architecture, writing and religion—all of Egyptian culture was developed “in house.”

The themes of writing, religion, natural resources and of course mummification will be explored in this new permanent exhibition hall.

When: Members Preview: May 24-30, 2013; Public Opening: May 31, 2013
Location: Houston Museum of Natural Science, 5555 Hermann Park Drive, Houston 77030

Ever since the late 18th century, the Western world has been exploring Egypt. This hall will present artifacts collected during these early days of investigations, and will also compare old-style archaeology with 21st-century approaches, such as using satellite imagery and remote sensing to locate and map ancient settlements. The Museum’s own mummy, Ankh Hap, will be moved to his new surroundings in time for the opening on May 24, 2013.
