Paul Rucker’s exhibition, REWIND, presents a challenging visual and emotional experience in the gallery and artist’s studio from Feb 7 – Mar 7. This extended workshop and dialogue is hosted by MacArthur fellow Liz Lerman and Robert W. Deutsch Foundation fellow Paul Rucker. You’ll have a chance to engage and respond to REWIND through a modified version of Liz’s Critical Response Process, along with interactive experiences based on the thoughts and hopes of the assembled group.
Lerman, through her Critical Response Process, is gaining national recognition for her ability to confront and deal with the pressing social issues that affect us all in the wake of events such as Ferguson, and the shootings of police officers in New York City. Break bread and make conversation with your neighbors and fellow members of the community.
Paul Rucker is a visual artist, composer, and musician who combines media, often integrating live performance, sound, original compositions, and visual art. His work is the product of a rich interactive process through which he investigates the impact of the community, human rights issues, historical research, and basic human emotions surrounding a subject.
Rucker has received numerous grants, awards, and residencies for visual art and music. He recently was awarded a Creative Capital Foundation grant award for visual art, as well as a MAP Fund grant for performance. In 2013, he was named the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation Artist in Residence and Research Fellow at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and is currently a resident at Creative
Alliance. In 2012, he received an award for Visual Art from the Creative Capital Foundation, a 10-week residency at Headlands Center for the Arts in California, the Conductive Garboil Grant, a Grant for Artists Projects from Artist Trust, and an Artist Project Grant and Gallery Show from 4Culture.
