Keri Oldham’s exhibition of film related work will open with a reception tomorrow, Saturday, August 13 from 7 to 9 pm at The Reading Room, 3715 Parry Avenue. It will continue through August 28.

The pieces in this exhibition are the fade-out “end scenes” from various films, re-imagined and used to examine endings on a personal level. Oldham is interested in how we are influenced by film and television narratives and incorporate stories about love, success, and morality into our lives both consciously and subconsciously.

Oldham is an artist, curator, writer, and former Dallasite now living in Brooklyn. Her work has been shown at Camel Art Space, Fountain Art Fair, and Dave Bown Projects as well as The McKinney Avenue Contemporary, 500X Gallery, Centraltrak Artist Residency, and Kirk Hopper Fine Art in Dallas. She holds degrees in philosophy from Loyola University and in curatorial studies from San Francisco State University. She is a 2010 BRIC Arts Media Fellow.
