CWMCA Artists In Residence Spotlight: Stories of Solidarity, Artist Talk & Panel with Marisa Morán Jahn
Wednesday, April 21, 2021
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts and the Blaffer Art Museum for an artist’s talk by Marisa Moran Jahn and panel conversation with Rafi Segal, June Barrett, and Laurie Simmons moderated by Karen Farber.
In this artist’s presentation, artist Marisa Moran Jahn shares her decade-long work with caregivers producing creative media, public art, and now architectural and urban-scale projects. Jahn and architect Rafi Segal will present their collaboration on Carehaus — the United States’ first care-based co-housing project and its related exhibition on view at the Blaffer Museum of Art. A conversation on the role of art, architecture, storytelling in creating new narratives to dignify care and aging will be joined by June Barrett, a Miami-based caregiver, activist, and long-time collaborator with Jahn, and Laurie Simmons, the Houston coordinator for We Dream in Black initiative that builds the political power and visibility of Black domestic workers across the African diaspora.
Presented by the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts in conjunction with the Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston.
