Take a virtual tour of Ed Ruscha: OKLA at Oklahoma Contemporary in this video I made for the art center.
This landmark exhibition by one of America’s most important artists looks at the ways in which work throughout Ruscha’s 60+ year career has been connected to his childhood in Oklahoma City and his continued trips back there from Los Angeles. This is the first exhibition to focus on the artist’s Oklahoma roots — his family, his upbringing, and his discovery of his calling as an artist. It is also, remarkably, his first solo museum exhibition in his home state.
Learn about Fieldworks: Beyond Measure, on view in Oklahoma Contemporary’s Mary LeFlore Clements Oklahoma Gallery, with Curatorial Fellow, Pablo Barrera (Wixáritari).
Organized by Barrera, this exhibition features works produced as part of a University of Oklahoma residency that invites artists, scholars, and students to artistically respond to the presence of humans in the American Southwest. Watch this video I did for the gallery and explore the Fieldworks project’s diverse archive of objects, photographs.
In this video I did for Oklahoma Contemporary, Robert Bailey and Todd Stewart discuss the new exhibition, Fieldworks: Beyond Measure. Fieldworks, an interdisciplinary residency, invites artists, scholars and students to artistically respond to the presence of humans in the American Southwest. Beyond Measure presents a selection from the OU Fieldworks project’s diverse archive of objects, photographs, texts, videos and more.

I want to give a huge thanks to Jew Lewin Studio for commissioning me to capture b-roll and to edit several videos with the footage. If you watch Oklahoma Contemporary’s feed, you’ll see another video of Aqueous with different shots, including some drone footage by another videographer. (I’ll edit this post with it when they publish it.) Learn more about Jen’s work at www.JenLewinStudio.com
This is my first video shot with my new Lumix S1H. This video shows off what a beast this camera is capable of capturing. All the footage, with the exception of the slow-motion shots, were shot in 5.9K 10-bit HDR HLG. Despite the low light conditions, the image is so clean. I’m really happy with how well this video turned out.
Thank you to my supporters on Patreon for their continued support of making Uncovering Oklahoma possible! Supporters get awesome rewards, like early access to my episodes. Big thanks to superstar supporters: Revolve Productions and the Lynn and Steve Keller-Kenton Family.
