Opening Reception: Connecting the Silos group showcase


Connecting the Silos

an Artist INC-Houston group showcase

On view: November 1 - December 13, 2017
Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 8, 6-8pm


Connecting the Silos, is an interdisciplinary group show featuring new collaborative works by twenty-seven Houston-based visual and performing artists with disciplines ranging from music, film, dance, public art, photography, fashion, and painting. The collaborative nature of the exhibition will result in a dynamic multi-media showcase of installation and performance art.

Participating artists are 2017 graduates of Fresh Arts' Artist INC-Houston program. Through Artist INC-Houston, these artists – selected through a juried process – gathered for one night a week for eight weeks to learn business skills specific to their art practice and apply those skills cooperatively with their peers. Artist INC ended in May 2017, but the artists who participated requested an opportunity to present work with their newly-discovered peers across disciplines.  This is how Connecting the Silos was born.

2017 Mitchell Artist Lecture featuring The Yes Men

The Mitchell Center presents artists and activists The Yes Men!

Join the
University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts for the 2017
Mitchell Artist Lecture, a landmark public program that annually features major
figures in the world of artistic collaboration. This year’s speakers are
artists and political activists,
Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno,
known together as The Yes Men.
They've
been doing "identity correction" or "laughtivism" for
nearly two decades. By impersonating leaders and big corporations who put
profits ahead of everything else, The Yes Men publicly humiliate them and
expose their criminal practices. They've made three award-winning feature films
about their actions, and gained international notoriety for impersonating big
businesses on international TV and conferences around the world.

About the
Mitchell Artist Lecture


The annual Mitchell Artist Lecture features individuals emblematic of artistic
collaboration and innovation. Each fall, a leading artist discusses the power
and potential of interdisciplinary collaboration to a combined audience of
university community and the greater public.

 

About the Mitchell Center

The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for
the Arts is dedicated to interdisciplinary collaboration across the performing,
visual and literary arts. Based in the University of Houston Kathrine G.
McGovern College of the Arts, the Mitchell Center commissions and produces new
works, presents public performances and exhibitions, offers scholarships, and
hosts residencies with renowned visiting artists from throughout the world. In
addition to the Mitchell Artist Lecture, the center produces CounterCurrent, an
annual spring festival of new performance. The Mitchell Center forms an alliance
among five departments at UH: the School of Art, Moores School of Music, School
of Theatre & Dance, Creative Writing Program and Blaffer Art Museum. The
Center was created in late 2003 with a gift from George Mitchell in honor of
his wife, Cynthia Woods Mitchell, whose long-standing love of the arts was so
evident throughout her life.

NARS International Residency Open Call

NARS is now accepting applications for the International Residency Program from international and US based artists. The NARS residency supports emerging and mid-career artists and curators working across all disciplines through three and six-month residencies, creating a space for artistic dialogue and international cultural exchange for an extended period of time. 

NARS offers 24/7 access to furnished, private or semi-private studio spaces (280-325 sq ft) in our diverse artist community in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. As a studio based residency, the focus is on the artistic process and the experimentation that results from working alongside other artists, within New York's cultural and sociopolitical context. 

Artists meet with 4-6 studio visitors each month, gaining invaluable feedback and expanding their network of artists and professionals in NY and internationally. Residents are provided with administrative, curatorial, and professional support to explore and expand the scope of their artistic practice through research, dialogue, and the production of new projects.

Public presentation opportunities include a curated exhibition in the NARS gallery, bi-annual Open Studios, and theEntree/Encore program, through which artists share research and work through artist talks, discussions, screenings, workshops, and performances. The NARS Gallery hosts exhibitions year-round.


Residency artists benefit from a community driven program and ongoing dialogue with fellow residency artists through weekly informal gatherings, inter-studio visits and activities, as well as monthly field trips and meals together. At NARS, residents also have the advantage of working alongside 60 emerging and established NYC based artists in our studio facilities, who retain space year round. The program and facilities are designed to form a community, foster the expansion and exchange of artistic and cultural practices, and provide artists with exposure to New York and its art scene. 

Accepting applications from international artists for a 3 or 6 month residency in 2018-9 and from US-based artists for the Winter and Spring 2018 seasons.

Requests for Proposals: Bayou Trails

Houston artists, arts professionals and organizations invited to invigorate parks through responsive arts programming; proposals requested

Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) is seeking proposals from
Houston-based artists, arts professionals and/or organizations for the creation
and implementation of responsive arts projects in three Houston Parks (Hermann,
MacGregor and Mason ) along Brays Bayou in the southeast portion of the city.

These three projects are part of a large initiative called
Bayou Trails that is funded by a National Endowment for the Arts Our Town
grant. The Our Town grant program supports creative placemaking projects that
help to transform communities into lively, beautiful and resilient places with
the arts at their core.

Bayou Trails serves three neighborhoods and their signature
parks along Brays Bayou. This bayou corridor traverses the Latino-identified
East End, the largely African-American Southeast sector and the
culturally-mixed Museum District. Throughout winter 2016 and spring 2017, the three
participating communities engaged in a series of convenings during which
residents, neighbors and other individuals developed project concepts to be
realized in the communities’ respective parks. Though the project concepts are
distinct, all three aim to highlight the unique history, environment and/or
spirit of the parks and their surrounding neighborhoods.  

To animate these community-driven concepts, HAA is calling
for Bayou Trails proposals from interested artists, arts professionals and/or
organizations through an open Request for Proposal (RFP) process that began
July 3, 2017. Proposals for each of these $45,000-$50,000 projects must be
received by August 3, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. (CST). Applicants should submit a
proposal in response to only one of the three Bayou Trails RFPs.

To learn more about Bayou Trails and the participating
communities and to explore each of the three distinct RFPs, please visit
https://ourbayoutrails.com/.

Bayou Trails partners include Houston Department of Parks
and Recreation, Hermann Park Conservancy, Greater East End Management District,
Houston Southeast, East Lawndale Civic Association, SE Houston Transformation
Alliance, the Friends of MacGregor Park, the Museum Park Neighborhood
Association and many others.

Additional funding for Bayou Trails is generously provided
by Wells Fargo and The Brown Foundation.
