The Lens Capsule is a mobile exhibition space hosted from the back of a rental truck. It was co-founded by artists, Emily Peacock and Britt Thomas. We have operated solo and group exhibitions for emerging lens-based Texas artists since 2012. We currently operate biannually as an official participating space during Fotofest, the first international Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art in the United States.
Our mission is to expand professional opportunities for emerging photographers and lens-based Texas artists through exhibition, promotion, and a large audience. Due to our mobility, we are able to capitalize on established art spaces’ strong opening attendance. We are grateful to the cooperation and support we have had with our local art spaces such as Fotofest, Lawndale Art Center, Houston Center for Photography, Box13 Art Space, and Art League Houston.
