Jen Delos Reyes, Visiting Artist Lecture
Next week: TUES., November 8 at 6:30 PM
In-person. Visual Arts Complex, 1B20 Auditorium
Jen Delos Reyes is the strong eldest daughter of an immigrant single mother. Through her upbringing on Canada’s prairies she learned about resourcefulness, community building, and how to prioritize joy, fashion, and aesthetics from her Filipine mother. She is the first homeowner and degree holder in her immediate family. She centers her practice around education, ecologies, and the transformative possibilities of sharing domestic space as a community resource.
Jen identifies with Wendell Berry’s description as a 'farmer of sorts and an artist of sorts,' an educator, writer, and radical community arts organizer. She is defiantly optimistic, a friend to all birds, and a proponent that our institutions can become tender and vulnerable. Delos Reyes divides her time between Chicago and Ithaca, where she is invested in cultivating land-based community sustained projects.
*This visiting artist lecture will be recorded and available for viewing in the VRC's archive in January. We hope that you will join us for the in-person lecture and conversation.
