2:2:2 Exchange Lecture With Maria Gaspar says
Maria Gaspar uses installation, sculpture, performance, community-engagement, and audio to examine contested sites and power and place within local geographies. Gaspar's talk will focus on her collaborative projects that engage community-based participation and generate community scholarship, such as 96 Acres (2012-Present) and City As Site (2010). Her ongoing research explores actions, performance art processes, and improvisational approaches within collective work that explore the social and political body through long-term processes.

Date: Tuesday, October 13th at 6:30PM

Location: 2521 Holman Street

About the 2:2:2 Exchange
http://projectrowhouses.org/public-art/222-exchange

The 2:2:2 Exchange is a new initiative that features an an interchange between two artists, one based in Houston, TX, and one based in Chicago, IL. This collaboration exposes artists already working with socially engaged, site-specific practices to new communities with the goal of expanding their artistic practice in the context of a city new to them. Similarly sized, both Houston and Chicago provide a dynamic urban space, rich with artistic engagement. Through this residency exchange, Project Row Houses and Hyde Park Art Center aim to provide an opportunity for artists to research localized ways of thinking and creating in a different city to enhance their practices at home.
