Communograph Sidewalk Talk - Life Archived Through Art @ Project Row Houses
THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 2011 (Communograph Sidewalk Talk)Sidewalk Talk: Life Archived through Art Time: 6 pm - 8 pm Place: 2521 Holman Street Houston, TX 77004 (713) 526-7662
Michael K. Taylor will use art as functional interactive objects while reading and performing poems written from interviews and research in 3rd Ward Houston, Texas. Some of the interviews were conducted at S.H.A.P.E. Community Center's Elders Circle of Wisdom and will feature members in attendance and dialogue.
The Sidewalk Talks series extends the exhibition out of itself and onto the sidewalk in front. This opens the project’s discourse to the voices and concerns of the surrounding neighborhood, taking up its pressing issues and inviting neighbors directly into the project’s dialogue.
Communograph is a multi-platform art project, conceived and initiated by Ashley Hunt and organized in collaboration with residents of Houston’s Third Ward community, Project Row Houses, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, and students and faculty of the University of Houston’s School of Art.
