Building a more equitable Houston in Harvey’s aftermath Panel discussion focused on rebuilding after the storm Thursday, April 19


In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Houston has a chance to rebuild, to become a more equitable city.



Artist Molly Gochman wants to help inspire forward momentum – and is hosting a panel discussion on the subject from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, at the Deborah Colton Gallery, 2445 North Blvd., in Houston.  



Panel members include the Texas Organizing Project’s Ginny Goldman and Michelle Tremillo, who both serve as executive directors. The Texas Organizing Project promotes social and economic equality for low to moderate income Texans through community and electoral organizing.



Also on the panel are Joe Carlos Madden, Head of Policy at Commissioner Ellis’ office, and Marianela Acuña Arreaza, executive director of Fey Y Justica Worker Center, a safe space for low-wage workers to learn about their rights in the workplace and to organize to improve conditions on the job.



Event attendees will learn more about what's been done over the past several months to build a more equitable Houston, along with what plans are in the works for the future.



The panel will be held in conjunction with Gochman’s exhibit "Drenched," an examination of life in Houston after Hurricane Harvey. The work also explores life in India after extreme flooding. By looking at both environments, the artist is able to show the myriad ways water works to build, destroy, connect, devour and grow.



"Drenched" combines three series by Gochman – "Before," "Waterfalls Wept" and "Surrogates." Together, these works seek to explore, in the context of both Houston and India, the myriad ways water works to build, destroy, connect, devour and grow.



“Before,” is an examination of life in Houston after Hurricane Harvey and in India after extreme flooding. Harvey was the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting nearly $200 billion in damage all over Houston. The resulting floods inundated hundreds of thousands of homes, displaced more than 30,000 people and resulted in 100 deaths.



As a result of heavy monsoon rains that led to flooding in South Asia, more than 1,200 people died across India, Bangladesh and Nepal. In addition, more than 40 million people were immediately affected by the devastation, and 1.8 million children were left out of school. The numbers continued to grow with time.



The images Gochman created for “Before” are memorials to the emotional loss caused by flooding. The artist combined images of flood-damaged personal items and parts of homes that became piles of trash with images of fabric, and transferred them onto aluminum.



“All of the images I saw of flooded towns and cities in India depicted brown water – the same color as the water in Houston, Port Arthur, Galveston and Rockport,” Gochman said. “The fabric you see reminds me of the colors of India, these disasters and of water.”



Gochman is an interdisciplinary conceptual artist and activist based in New York. She founded Red Sand Project in 2014, and the organization’s installations and events have taken place around the U.S. and across the globe.



The exhibit will run through the FotoFest 2018 Biennial, ending on Sunday, April 22. This show is a product of Commune Projects Foundation.

NYC Creative Agency, Harley & Co. is looking to hire local artists to draw on fake tattoos in their custom Tattoo Parlor activation at ULTA's Beauty 2018 Conference. We would work directly with artists to create the tattoo designs and a 'flash sheet' for guests to pick from at the event. 


The event is on April 5th, during the day 11am - 4pm and will be highly attended with beauty stakeholders and ~1500 guests. We'd have a sign up process for the tattoos so it won't get too crazy. We are looking for two artists max. We'd really love to collaborate with local artists to make this a very cool event.
