Old Furnace Artist Residency: Art is a Conjunction
Curated by Giorgia Gandolfini
Jon Henry, artist and activitst based in Harrisonsburg, VA, presents Old Furnace Artist Residency, a long-term social aesthetics project that weaves together social sculpture, relational aesthetics, intervention, gesture, performance, community art, and participation art to create a praxis of social justice and art. Jon started the project back in 2013 and it not only hosts artists but publishes a quarterly zine and sponsors community programs like the regional CSArts initiative.
