Chloe Hayward in conversation with Rowan Renee
May 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Freedom, incarceration, family trauma, and art will be at the center of this conversation between artist Rowan Renee and therapist and artist Chloe Hayward. Ten years ago, Rowan Renee’s father passed away in prison. Renee’s family was not given the opportunity to visit him as his health declined. The interruption of the grieving process caused by the carceral system amplified other losses that came before his incarceration, flanked by intergenerational trauma and family secrets. For years afterward, Renee felt like there was no ritual that could hold this complex grief. The installation at FiveMyles envisions artistic labor as a vehicle for transforming loss that exceeds our limits, as well as questions one has to deal with when confronted with the carceral system in the United States.
Seating is limited, please RSVP. The talk will be recorded and made available on the FiveMyles website a few days after the event.
