It’s a first-time collaboration between the two organizations, this new program will begin in early 2015. The initiative, titled the 2:2:2 Exchange, features an interchange between two artists, one based in Houston, TX, and one based in Chicago, IL. Houston artist Rosine Kouamen’s will participate in the Jackman Goldwasser Residency at Hyde Park Art Center from February 1 – March 26, 2015; Chicago artist Maria Gaspar’s will be in residence at Project Row Houses in Houston from September 28 – November 20.
The idea is to give socially engaged, site-specific artista an opportunity to localize somewhere else ofr a while in order to enhance their practices at home.
