JOJO ABOT Artist Residency- Hult Center for the Performing Arts

JOJO ABOT is an interdisciplinary artist who will be at the Hult Center for a week long residency culminating in two workshops, a gallery show, two immersive performances and a musical performance.

ABOT’s gallery exhibition will be on display in the Maurie Jacobs Community Room starting with an opeining reception on January 4, 5:30 pm during the first Friday ArtWalk. ABOT’s 2D and 3D artworks “explore the manifestations and reaffirmations of the divine feminine as the essence of love, rebirth, imagination, healing, magic and life herself among other glorious things”.  In addition, the gallery will be open before and during all Hult Center performances and is free to the public.

On Wednesday, January 23rd at 5:30PM, she will be hosting a free workshop centered on Art as Activism. This workshop will use the first immersive performance on January 22nd to provoke a dialogue with the community about important questions such as:  How does art provoke and sustain a revolution? What is the responsibility of art vs. the artists vs. the audience in creating impact towards evolution? What is the power that each participant holds? Where does art and culture serve as a tool for radical change?

On Friday, January 25th at 4:00PM, she will be hosting a free workshop centered on Problematic Afro Words. This workshop will  be an imaginative experience exploring conversation topics such as; Cultural Appropriation vs Cultural Appreciation, the evolution of the African identity and experience, and Africans as nonlinear time travelers.

There is a $2 service fee to RSVP for the workshop, and space is limited. If you or anyone is interested in attending, please RSVP here:
