DS4SI is super excited to host Houston-based artist Carrie Schneider as part of our on-going Art Unfolded Series. She will be at the Studio Wednesday, October 12th, from 5:30-7:30.
Carrie Schneider is an artist interested in collapsing moments across time and the ability of people to reimagine their space. Her projects include Hear Our Houston(2011) a hub of public generated audio walking tours, Care House (2012) an installation in the house she grew up in considering the roles of caregiving/caretaking and the bodies of mother/home, The Human Tour 2013 with collaborator Alex Tu, a 40 mile caravan tracing the outline of a human onto the streets of the city, Sunblossom Residency (2009-2015) in which middle schoolers who are resettled refugees chose seven multidisciplinary artists to teach them their processes of making, and Incommensurate Mapping (2014) an exhibition which excavated the Contemporary Art Museum Houston's past visions of its potential futures and invited visitors play with/in the institution. Schneider co-organized Charge , a Houston convening of local and national presenters to platform artist-led models, advocate for equitable compensation of artists, and consider artists’ work in the larger economy. She teaches art to kids and loves dancing queer tango. http://www.carriemarieschneider.com/
