CurrentConversations, organized by Carrie Marie Schneider
CounterCurrent festival artists and University of Houston faculty experts engage in lively discussion about themes and concepts connected to this year’s festival programming. Each one-hour, lunchtime talk kicks off with a set of rapid-fire presentations followed by questions and answers among panelists and the audience. Light fare and coffee will be provided.
Carrie Marie Schneider (Houston, TX) is an artist interested in reimagining the sociocultural politics of space and time through the organization social projects that interrogate the many ways in which community, care, and economics are connected. Her projects include Hear Our Houston (2011), a hub of public generated audio walking tours, Care House (2012), an installation in the house she grew up in considering the roles of caregiving/caretaking and the bodies of mother/home and Sunblossom Residency (2009-15). Schneider co-organizes Charge, a convening at Art League Houston of local and national presenters to platform artist-led models and to consider artists’ work in the larger economy. Schneider was an inaugural fellow for the 2017 Center for Art and Social Engagement fellowship through the University of Houston and Project Row Houses.
