#REDSANDPROJECT

Upcoming Events

April 19th 6 – 8 PM

April 19, 6 – 8 PM: Join a group of panelists as they discuss the path to a more equitable Houston, in the context of the city post-Harvey. Learn more about what’s been done over the past several months, and what plans are for the future. (More details TBA!)

Molly Gochman’s Drenched is exploring ways water can destroy as it reshapes our environments and lives.

 Her hope, with the series of installations, has been to create a space in which we can examine the vulnerabilities people face because of natural disasters, and the ways in which communities come together as a result.

 In building upon that theme, she’s going to be hosting two events in the space over the next month that will open up space to talk about ways we can build a more equitable Houston post-Harvey.

APRIL 22nd – DRENCHED exhibition closing.

Molly Gochman’s DRENCHED will combine three of her works: Before, Waterfalls Wept and Surrogates. Alone, these works represent many different things. Together, they seek to explore, in the context of both Houston and India, the myriad ways water works to build, destroy, connect, devour and grow. Before, specifically, is an examination of life in Houston after Hurricane Harvey and in India after the extreme flooding. Harvey was the costliest tropical cyclone on record, inflicting nearly $200 billion ….READ MORE

I know there are a lot of groups meeting right now to talk about this, but I think it’d be valuable to have you at these conversations to share personal stories and to hear from people working on-the-ground.

Why do artists choose to engage with a social or political issue? This panel welcomes artists whose art and activism has received wide notice to explain the process behind such work. Some might wish art would avoid the challenges of the ‘real world,’ but our panelists discuss why aesthetic politics matter today.

Molly Gochman is a New York City-based experiential artist and activist. She created Red Sand Project as an artwork to raise awareness of human trafficking and modern-day slavery. Jill Sigman/thinkdance is an interdisciplinary artist whose work exists at the intersection of dance, visual art, and social practice. Working with “garbage” and “weeds”, Sigman helps us to re-see our environments and envision a future in which we reconnect with the natural world. Subway therapist Matthew “Levee” Chavez creates site-specific installations that encourage peaceful expression through anonymous catharsis on sticky notes in New York City Subways.

The Junior League of Portland, ME will be raising awareness of human trafficking by hosting an installation of the Red Sand Project at the First Friday Art Walk on Friday, May 5 in Monument Square. In 2016, The Junior League adopted a new focus area, Reaching Youth at Risk. A component of this focus is to raise awareness in the community about human trafficking and sexual exploitation. There are an estimated 200-300 victims of sex trafficking in Maine per year and calls to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center Hotline have increase by over 50% in recent years.
