Performing the Neighborhood

Project Row Houses and the University of Houston’s Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts have launched a five-year partnership to commission major performance-based works by contemporary artists to be presented in and around the PRH site in the Third Ward. Artists will draw upon the neighborhood as well as the often complicated intersection between campus and community. Artists are selected jointly at a rate of one artist per year beginning in 2016 and will present their projects during the Counter Current Festival. Participating artists include Jason Moran, Kevin Beasley, Okwui Okpowasili and many more!
