Winter 2018-2019 Artist-in-Residence
As our Winter 2019 artist-in-residence, gloria galvez’s work will examine carceral frameworks in our society and highlight maneuvers to dismantle both material and abstract forms of imprisonment. This endeavor will be catalyzed by an onsite collaboration with Critical Resistance, a grassroots organization working to build a mass movement to abolish the prison-industrial-complex.

Join artist Michelle Antonisse inside the installation space of artist in residence iris yirei hu for a personal Animal Medicine Card reading. These readings resemble those of Tarot, but use the symbolism of animals within myriad Native American mythologies. Enforced by the physical space we will occupy, this practice aims to reflect processes of teaching, learning, and maintaining a connectivity to the natural world while existing within a social one. Like many medicines, the process of reading these cards is one of healing and not necessarily comfort. You may expect the cards to reflect patterns and spiritual identities, but not necessarily to predict outcomes or to to provide traditional advice. Instead, the two card spread that will be used is intended to ground the participant, to help them listen to the father and mother within, and to reconcile the actions of exterior identities with an interior self. Please come 10-15 minutes early to prepare for the experience with a short reading and worksheet.
