Learn about the creative process and engage with the artists at the first open studio for the Co-Lab Residency. Choreographer Jasmine Hearn and visual artist Kameelah Rasheed will discuss their unique practices and share new collaborative work that will be launched on May 2017.

The event will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Free admission.

About the artists

Jasmine Hearn has previously traveled throughout the United States honing her craft via collaborations with dance companies, choreographers, and other artists.  Through physical movement, Hearn will draw from her experiences as a self-identified black queer artist to cultivate an aesthetic environment to experience vulnerability.

Visual artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed has been featured in number of solo exhibitions, including the first all-female collaborative gallery in the nation, A.I.R., as well as MoCADA, VOLTA, and 21ST Projects: Critical Practices, Inc. Her work explores the implications of language and political narration within text-based installations, large-scale public text pieces, sound projects, and discursive programming.

Co-Lab Residency Program

Co-Lab is an interdisciplinary residency program intended to deepen local exposure to dance, celebrate the borough’s storied legacy with the choreography, and foster connections to up-and-coming Bronx talent. The initiative showcases the Bronx Museum as a laboratory for the development of performance and visual art forms, while also cultivating a new generation of engaged audiences. Residents are selected by an advisory panel for their demonstrated creative rigor, strong innovative potential, and interest in public interactivity. Co-Lab is supported by a grant from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, and will provide local choreographers with much-needed performance spaces for dance artists, as well as financial support, professional networking, and other resources.

Geoffrey Gloak

may be one of the few people you meet who is always glad to talk taxes. He has spent 17 years immersed in government communications – almost entirely in the tax field. He currently serves as the Director of Public Relations at the New York State Tax Department. In each of Geoff’s positions, he has created opportunities to transform the communications environment for the benefit of the organization. Under his leadership, Tax Department public relations have shifted from a reactive focus to proactive outreach. Most recently, Geoff led the STAR Registration media campaign to assist 2 million homeowners with property tax relief while eliminating fraud. As a result of extensive press outreach, more than 300 articles were printed in daily papers alone, and broadcast media repeatedly covered the story in each corner of the state. Less than 5 months after launch, 2.3 million homeowners had registered for their property tax exemptions. Geoff (@gloak23) lives in Kinderhook with his journalist wife, Kristi Berner (@kristiberner), and 4-year-old daughter, Gemma, who is now proud to be able to write her name.
