Making Water Fun Again
June 17, 2018
1517 Alabama St
8 - 10 pm
Carrie Schneider, 2017 Center for Art & Social Engagement - Project Row Houses Fellow, expands on the research of her fellowship and invites the public to play with what's possible between our collective imagination and our relationship with water in Houston.
Join us at Axelrad to create a (very) temporary water-based installation/performance. We'll provide supplies and the environment, you choose your music and perform your own water ritual. The waterscapes will be simultaneously shot from below and projected on to the stage wall so we can share in the experience.
This is a launch event for Harvey Baths, a project in which 11 custom imagined baths (1 per city council district) will be created to renegotiate our relationship with water post-Harvey and in the face of climate change. As part of the ongoing research into the project and the installation, Carrie invites artists and creatively-inspired community members to imagine and share their own Harvey Bath: http://bit.ly/2HD2TRe
This event is funded in part by the Center for Art and Social Engagement with support from the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance and with support from the Kathrine G. McGovern College of the Arts and the Houston Endowment
