Project Row Houses opening: Round 41: Process and Action: An Exploration of Ideas


This series of exhibitions explores the ways in which contemporary artists deal with labor-intensive practices. To accomplish this, the artists will explore their individual artistic practices and the labor issues that have shaped their work as well as the community and society at-large.

To develop this round, several questions were posited: How does the artistic process relate to Labor issues? How do artists discuss the labor related practices in their work? How does an artist view their labor-intensive process relative to the labor practices that a non-artist experiences daily? How does the average worker in Third Ward and beyond connect to an artist around issues of Labor?

To answer these questions and others that arise in-process, the artists will attempt to bridge the gap between the themes of labor and the artistic practice and activate the art houses by highlighting process-oriented work, engaging with the women of the Young Mothers Residential Program, and speaking to the broader themes that a discussion of Labor gives rise to.

As the first round devoted entirely to female voices, Process and Action features installations by an interdisciplinary group of eight artists, including Rabéa Ballin, Julia Brown, Vanessa Diaz, Akua Holt, Rosine Kouamen and Monica Villareal. Round 41 will also feature an education house dedicated to programming throughout the event, featuring visuals by former Summer Studios artist Jessie Anderson.

Round 41 is organized by public art director Ryan Dennis, with sound and programming co-organized by M'kina Tapscott.

Artists talks are scheduled for 2:30-4 p.m., following by the opening festivities from 4-7 p.m. On view through March 1, 2015.
