Phase Magazine's issue 2 launch offered the art scene of Houston an installation of clothing, film, prints, and the first seen Issue 2. Phase wanted to give our viewers a fully interactive installation where the audience could apprehend every detail that went into the making of our new issue. Everything inside of the popup was built, created and or installed by our own teams hands. The interior of the popup held a short film projected upon the gallery walls, prints of behind the scenes photographs by Clinton Elliott, installation of all of the ensembles of the clothing and footwear used in the styling of Issue 2, a live performance art of the two models (Andrew Okano and Matt Fearno) shaving their heads for the audience, and the first time Houston could see Issue 2 of Phase Magazine. In the images below show moments taken during the popup.
Phase wants to give a huge thanks to everyone who came to show support, we truly do this for you guys. Phase's motive is to give homage to all of these talented artists, and we think we fulfilled that on this night.
Also, a special thanks to all the Photographers included in this issue: Shaider Divina and Gia Cope.. The models as well: Andrew Okano, Matt Fearno, Enmi Yang, and Michelle Minaschek. All of you did more than execute our vision for Issue 2 and we're over the moon about it. A special thanks to Preston Douglas for allowing us to pull from your collection.
Thank you AtmosphereLight for taking these beautiful pictures at our popup. Thank you The Space HTX for the perfect place to have our launch and the free creative control to make this event our own.
