CounterCurrent is a five-day festival of bold experimental art presented by the Mitchell Center. Occupying a range of unexpected sites in the city of Houston, CounterCurrent includes audio and visual installation, live performance, and participatory events by artists from around the world. Collaborations with dynamic organizations and artists in the Houston community are included as well as fresh new works by University of Houston faculty and students.
