Friday, April 10th
Event Time: 11:00am- 11:45am | Online Zoom Conference
Fridays this month will offer a new, digital lens to artist studio visits. Halcyon fellows, alumni and studio artists invite you to join them as they share interactive collaborations, discuss how their practice has shifted over the past month, and address how quarantine and self-isolation affect their communities.
Join Halcyon Cohort 3 Fellow, Molly Joyce, in a timely conversation about how we can all learn from people with disabilities around their strategies of care. She will be joined by Baltimore-based artist and disability advocate Robin Marquis.
Closed captioning will be available. For accommodation requests, contact Maggie Connolly at [email protected].
Robin Lynne Marquis (they/them) is an artist, facilitator, disability activist and accessibility consultant based in Baltimore, MD. Robin has over a decade of experience leading initiatives, programming, and community collaborations with institutions of all sizes and people of all ages. They currently serve as the Community Outreach Coordinator for Access Smithsonian, the central accessibility office for the Smithsonian Institution, and holds an MFA in Community Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art. As an artist with a disability, Marquis is part of a national network of thought-leaders shaping the conversation about accessibility in the arts, while contributing to local efforts that combine creativity, education and activism to achieve positive social change.
Molly Joyce (she/her) is a composer, musician and performer and a current Halcyon Arts Lab Fellow. Her music has been described as one of “serene power” (New York Times), written to “superb effect” (The Wire), and “impassioned” (The Washington Post). Her works have been commissioned by ensembles including the New World, New York Youth, Pittsburgh, and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestras, and New Juilliard, Decoda, and Contemporaneous ensembles. Additionally, her work has been presented at TEDxMidAtlantic, Bang on a Can Marathon, Classical:NEXT, VisionIntoArt’s FERUS Festival, and featured in Pitchfork, WNYC’s New Sounds, Q2 Music, I Care If You Listen, and The Log Journal. Also active as a performer, Molly often sings and plays with her vintage toy organ, an instrument she loves due to how it fits her physically-impaired left hand. Her debut full-length album featuring such will be released on New Amsterdam Records in 2020.
