Mapping Vulnurability: Works by Glaucia Mir
Time & Location
About the Event
Osceola Arts-Art in Public Places at West Osceola Branch Library presents local artist and Osceola School District art teacher Gláucia Mir. Mir's recent mixed-media series titled "Mapping Vulnerability: Intersections" was inspired by observations made at a variety of street intersections crossed during her daily commutes in Kissimmee, FL. "This project centers around homelessness, where I wish to advocate as an artist/researcher/teacher through A/R/Tography, recording the locations, movements, and interactions of the homeless populations in my community, making them visible through artmaking and public exhibition. Through mapping, I documented places of homelessness and the many locations where I saw the homeless in Kissimmee. I examined these places as portraiture through observation, photography, note-taking, and created works of art referencing the spaces occupied by those perceived as vulnerable. Through art-making, I also explored ways in which I can create a bridge between the artist and the homeless, and the community at large", says Mir.
Works by Gláucia Mir will be on display at West Osceola Library from May 10 through July 30. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.glauciamir.com https://mappingvulnerability.blogspot.com/
