Project Row Houses (PRH), a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering people and enriching communities through engagement, art and direct action, will be unveiling its latest Artist Round, Round 48: Beyond Social Practice, on Saturday, October 13. The round will investigate the storied connection between artists and activism within contemporary art.

 Round 48 brings together a group of artists deeply engaged in collaborative practices that speak to social issues related to identity, politics, and activism. Participating artists and collectives include Tatyana Fazlalizadeh, Armina Mussa, Tia Simone Gardner, Lisa Harris, Dawn Weleski, Jackie Sumell and The Design Studio for Social Intervention. The site-specific installations highlight the critical work that artists play in shaping and framing socio-political issues while demonstrating their ties to various social justice movements and strategies.

 In conjunction with the opening, PRH will host a family-friendly block party featuring games, food, and performances from local artists. At the start of the block party, guests have the opportunity to hear from the artists about their individual practices and the inspiration behind their installation during Artists’ Talks. Round 48 will be on display through Sunday, February 17, 2019.

 Now in its 25th year, PRH was a thought experiment conceived by an extraordinary group of artists who have been active in the Houston community, especially the Third Ward, for decades.
