The Connection between Art and Resilience, Part Two
Welcome to episode nine of season one of Resilient Conversations, a podcast by PartnersGlobal that explores different facets of civic space resiliency. In this podcast, PartnersGlobal co-executive director, Roselie Vasquez-Yetter speaks with Anne Labovitz, a visual artist, author and activist from St. Paul Minnesota, who creates work about how political, social, and cultural platforms can be turned into personal acts of care.
Anne Labovitz is Artist Founder and Producer at 122 Conversations and Artist Founder and Managing Director at I Love You Institute. She is a contemporary artist whose work addresses themes of human connection, the immersive power of color, and radical care in art. Labovitz’s research-based practice combines painting, sculpture, light, installation, mixed media and social practice to address ideas by activating color and light in large-scale immersive work. As part of Labovitz’s artistic praxis, she connects to communities through artistic intervention, activism, anti-racism, and public co-creation.
