"You Are When You Sleep"
Brittany Reeber

  • Pop-Up @ Canopy (Gallery 103) 916 Springdale Road Austin, TX, 78702 United States (map)

In a crowded bar, I told an acquaintance that she looked like Parker Posey.

"Really? I don’t know who that is. Is she pretty?"

"Yeah, she’s really pretty."

"Pull her up on your phone."

I held up a google image search for Parker Posey. Her friends gathered around. 

"Mmm she doesn’t look like that girl.”   “You actually look like her way more."

"Yeah, I don’t look like Parker Posey. YOU look like Parker Posey."

“Wait… what? But her bone structure— and her voice. You have to hear her voice."

"She doesn’t look like her. You look like her."


An assortment of societally-induced identity crisis.

Floridian turned Texan, Brittany Reeber obtained a degree in film from the University of Texas and then remained there to pursue a career in directing and producing. Her short films, Psycho Billy (2013) and The Rapture and Gammy Gwen (2014), have been honored at the university level and screened around the U.S. Her video installation and performance work has been featured in various venues in Texas. She recently collaborated with Houston-based artist Mark Flood, to produce his feature film titled Art Fair Fever that is currently in exhibition.

This exhibition is a part of SUMMERSCOOL, an intensive program that prepares dedicated artists to propose, refine, and execute an exhibition concept in a professional and supportive environment. These selected artists have spent the last several months participating in our post-art-school curriculum which includes professional development in gallery preparation, art handling and installation, artist statements, bios, and talks, application preparation, grant writing, and community networking. These efforts now culminate in three exhibitions opening at our Canopy pop-up gallery.
