About this event

During this talk, you’ll learn about the artists’ careers. Artpace will provide a light meal on this casual evening of food, friends, and the future as we talk to the new residents about their practice.  Doors will open at 6pm and presentations begin at 6:30pm. This event is free and open to the public. Selected by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy.

About the artists

María José Crespo’s work investigates how the porous space between territory, language, limits, and body can be understood by extending their relations as gestures. By questioning the way in which she inhabits certain boundaries, she is interested in studying their remains, glimpses, and the traces that administrative powers leave in territories without clear definition. Crespo earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California and in 2015 completed an academic residency for photography in IADE in Lisbon, Portugal.

K8 Hardy is a punk rock artist who works across a motley array of mediums, including video, photography, and sculpture. Through her art practice, she unwittingly becomes a brand, intentionally exploiting persona and pop culture. Long before the ubiquity of the selfie, Hardy was experimenting in documenting her looks and various fictional selves. Her work takes us to the edge of “good taste” and makes us question those parameters. Hardy was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas and came up through the Riot Grrrl scene. She has participated avidly in collaborations, activism, and collectives, like W.A.G.E. and LTTR. Her work is in the collection of The MoMA, The Guggenheim, and Whitney Museum of American Art.

JD Pluecker works with language, that is, a material thing, a thing of life and history. Their undisciplinary work inhabits the intersections of writing, history, translation, art, interpreting, bookmaking, queer/trans aesthetics, non-normative poetics, language justice, and cross-border cultural production. JD’s book of poetry and image, Ford Over, was released in 2016 from Noemi Press, and in 2019 Lawndale Art Center supported the publication of the artist book, The Unsettlements: Dad. From 2010-2020, they worked as part of the transdisciplinary collaborative Antena Aire and from 2015-2020 with the local social justice interpreting collective Antena Houston.
