Rick Lowe

Musagetes and CAFKA - Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area announced that internationally renowned artist and social practice pioneer Rick Lowe will be speaking as part of the Big Ideas in Art and Culture Lecture Series. The Lecture will be held at the Kitchener City Hall Rotunda, 200 King Street West, Kitchener, admission is Free.

Houston-based artist Rick Lowe is the founder of Project Row Houses, an arts and cultural community located in Houston, Texas. In 1993, moved by the imminent demolition of several blocks of shotgun-style houses in the neighbourhood - one of the city’s oldest African American communities - Lowe came up with a plan to preserve the neighbourhood’s historic homes and provide essential services for its residents. Project Row Houses has created homes for single mothers and their children, residency spaces for artists to create new work with the local community, health centres, community gardens, and more. Originally occupying a group of twenty-two houses covering one and a half city blocks, Project Row Houses has grown to include over forty renovated properties, containing exhibition spaces, a literary center, a multimedia performance art space, offices, low-income housing, and other amenities.
