October 12 - February 16, 2020
“Curated by PRH Curator and Programs Director Ryan N. Dennis, Round 50 explores how artists, healthcare professionals, practitioners, and philanthropy are responding to the Black maternal mortality rate, a national health care issue that has local ramifications in Third Ward and other neighborhoods in Houston.
Round 50 participating artists include Dem Black Mamas Podcast (South Carolina and Los Angeles-based); Brian Ellison in collaboration with Jasmine Mans (Houston-based); Alexandra Folino (New York City-based); Lindsay Gary in collaboration with Stacey Allen, Cecilie Baxter, and Felicia Thomas (Houston-based); Healthy Women Houston (Houston-based); HTX People Project (Houston-based); and Elise R. Peterson (Los Angeles-based). The artists will create site-specific installations, which aim to have nuanced conversations that raise awareness, offer supportive services, participate in advocacy strategies that have an impact on Third Ward, and share resources and create multiple entryways to engage with the topic that is inclusive.”
