About Ángel Lartigue:
Ángel Lartigue is an artist born and raised in Houston TX. Recently I've been accepted to take part of the residency, SymbioticA, at the University of Western Australia in Perth. I am raising money for my travel expenses, living costs and residency bench fees for SymbioticA. The residency asks for a three month minimum stay but planning to stay at least a full six months, for the 2019 semester starting August. Founded by two bioartists, Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr, the residency is the first of its kind, an experimental artistic laboratory where researchers from all over the world create space, ask questions and critically engage with the life sciences. This residency will greatly benefit my current artistic projects and will be a stepping stone into furthering my career. Learn more about Ángel Lartigue HERE.

CULTURED COCKTAILS BENEFITING ETERNAL 30


Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, May 23rd, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during the 5:00PM -8:00PM happy hour will go to support Eternal 30. So enjoy a drink or two, meet the Eternal 30 team, and take-in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere! The proceeds from the evening will support Eternal 30 so don't be shy, raise a glass (or three) while raising funds for Eternal 30.


About Eternal 30:

Internal/Eternal is the collaborative effort of Rachel Orosco and Tom Carter. Together we design environments in which performers and artists (often including ourselves) dismantle the imaginary barriers between music, art, and performance in order to inspire a sense of community and possibility. 

Eternal 30 is an installation combining light, music, and collaborative performances that will endure for 30 days in a non-traditional venue to emphasize the short-lived nature of independent creative spaces in the face of Houston’s competitive real estate market. 

The installation will include multimedia projections by Rachel Orosco and improvisational and electronic music by guitarist Tom Carter that will envelop the viewers and listeners in an immersive environment punctuated by intermittent interventions of dance, performance, music, poetry, and other forms of expression. 

The venue for the installation is yet to be announced, but we're investigating spaces in central Houston locations that will allow access both by foot and public transportation. Our target months are May or September, although dates are flexible depending on the final venue. Other collaborators in the project will include internationally-known multimedia artists, musicians, filmmakers, and performers. Eternal 30 is partially funded by a generous Individual Artist Grant from the Mayor's Office of Cultural Affairs and the Houston Arts Alliance.

2019 Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts- Project Row Houses Fellows Lecture


Center for Art and Social Engagement at University of Houston
3333 Cullen Blvd, #120, Houston, Texas 77204

 

Join us to welcome the 2019 Kathrine G. McGovern College of the ArtsProject Row HousesFellows Sarah Raphael Garcia and Libby Bland. The two Fellows will share prior work and provide guiding questions and ideas about their upcoming Fellowship year.

Libby Bland brings a background in oral history and arts-based community design together with her research on the history of self-planned Black communities throughout the rural South. She previously worked with the Community Futures Lab in Philadelphia, and her research work investigates the narratives that Black people tell (and omit) about our experiences. 

Sarah Rafael García is a writer, traveler and arts educator with an M.F.A. in creative writing with an emphasis in fiction and cognate in media studies. She founded Barrio Writers, LibroMobile and Crear Studios, and published the multi-media project titled “SanTana’s Fairy Tales.” 

The KGMCA-PRH Fellowship invites artists and cultural practitioners to the Third Ward to work alongside urban planners, educators and policy makers, as well as engage in creative collaborations that involve the Third Ward community and address issues important to them.
