2017 COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT RESIDENCY:
HMD is pleased to launch the Community Engagement Residency, funded in part by the California Arts Council Artists Activating Communities program, to provide sanctuary and creative opportunity for artists who identify as coming from the margins.
The 2017 Community Engagement Resident artist is Julie Tolentino. For a full year, HMD is supporting Tolentino in working intensively with a small cohort of artists, selected by Tolentino herself, to share art practices, investigate ideas of sanctuary, precarity and advocacy, and create new work. Artists participating include Maurya Kerr, Amara Tabor Smith, Xandra Ibarra, and Larry Arrington.
As part of their year-long engagement, Tolentino, with Maurya Kerr, Amara Tabor Smith, Xandra Ibarra, and Larry Arrington, will show A.U.L.E., an in-process exploration, and offer a public discussion with Tolentino's long-term colleagues, Debra Levine and Scot Nakagawa. This unique event, part of the 2017 Bridge Project, Radical Movements, is Sunday November 12 at the Joe Goode Annex.
-an un-named lived experience*
& being with another seems to go by very fast. so much information. so much to tend to think about and the how of time talking thru how we resist, breakaway then give away. sensing bringing forward slinking back. why and what? stutter gasp. wait. what i wanted to say (because some fumbly dimming) and what that is: to be interested in. drop narrative like how there can be a split in the because. so description does not have a together & becomes again. the title perspectives. thin lines might be imagining the experts - leaning, convening and reverie and skins and what’s missing and all those rising - break - to see the small axis as axes. rushing to get it right. hard corps proposition stained and streaming. herbal opaque judge and unrecognizable currents and cruelty with utopia’s little edges. the separate conversations radiate dark root bodies & instead an aural portal, a vibe. or two or three or four or five or seven of us with each other’s other/s. All together. All a part of this.
