CPR 2021 Artist-in-Residence J. Bouey organizes a virtual Open Studios that gives a peek into the creative processes of angel edwards, Jayson P. Smith, and Janae Williams/juh weems/fatblackclit as they explore the ‘captive maternal’ (coined by Joy James), love and care during Black death, interrogating the ruptures that global anti-Blackness creates, and birthing self and others (obligatory and otherwise). The showings of each artists' work will be followed by a conversation with curator J. Bouey where they will share more about their creative processes, and what informs them.
Open Studios is a series of work-in-progress showings held regularly throughout the year, and serves as an incubator for new work, inviting the public into the artistic process.
