We are excited to announce our Spring 2023 artist-in-residence, Veronica A. Perez. Perez’s work is between interdisciplinary sculpture and community practice, encouraging a reflection on identity for participants and viewers alike.
Perez’s project with the University is an immersive installation featuring hair and oral stories ruminating on themes such as fractured identity, representation, and power, as articulated through the vision of students and community members. Together, these themes convey intimate stories commenting on larger systemic issues that affect BIPOC folx in our immediate communities.
This program is made possible with generous support from The Warren Foundation, the University of Southern Maine Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Council, the University’s Center for Collaboration and Development, and the University’s Women & Gender Studies Department. Funded by the Maine Humanities Council and the Maine Arts Commission.
