Encore Presentations: Rick Lowe

Program January 25, 2023, 7 p.m.
Virtual Program

The Rose Art Museum presents Encore Presentations. This series highlights the museum’s long history of engaging emerging and leading contemporary artists in critical conversations. This Encore Presentation features a discussion between artist Rick Lowe and Christopher Bedford, Rose Director (2012–2016).

Rick Lowe (b. 1961) roots his socially engaged art practice in community building. Originally trained as a painter, Lowe reenvisioned his practice in the 1990s to address his community's social, economic, and cultural needs more directly. In 1993, he and a group of fellow artists restored a block and a half of rundown buildings in the historically Black Third Ward neighborhood of Houston and founded Project Row Houses, a multi-use arts venue and community center. This conversation was held in 2016 as part of the series Art | Race | Activism.

Encore Presentations: Rick Lowe will be hosted online, featuring automated closed captions via Zoom. Registration is required.
