    Season 3 Episode 1 | Ligia Bouton (Part II)

    Season 3 Episode 1 | Ligia Bouton (Part II)

    Welcome to Season 3 of the Project Space Podcast! Our brand new season starts off with a sequel. Ligia Bouton, who was an artist in residence at VSW in 2022, is back on the podcast for Part 2 of her conversation with Assistant Curator, Hernease Davis. Ligia's first conversation with Hernease was actually the Season 1 finale. If you haven’t already listened to part 1, the link to that episode is in the show notes.

    For that first talk with Ligia, Hernease spoke with Ligia inside her Project Space Studio at the very end of her residency. Bouton has been researching the work of Henrietta Swan Leavitt, who is an important yet overlooked historical figure who made groundbreaking contributions to Astrology. Ligia spoke about how she is using photography, performance, glass, musical composition, and installation as an interdisciplinary approach to translate the extensive research she has done on Henrietta Swan Leavitt. In this episode, Ligia shares about returning to VSW to continue her project, and many exciting developments in her work that involves another residency, a major exhibition in Denmark and a public art project in Boston, Massachusetts. 

    Stay tuned and subscribed for upcoming episodes in Season 3.

ItsMattEhlers ,

Visual Studies Workshop is an amazing resource for artists

This podcast is a fascinating compendium to the exhibits, photography and published works of VSW. For decades I’ve enjoyed the work of the artists who visit Rochester, NY through the Project Space artist-in-residence program. It’s good to hear the stories behind their work in this format. Hernease is a wonderful host.

As VSW says: Non-conformist since 1969

Great conversations

This podcast really gives artists the chance to talk about their creative process and how residencies play a role. The editing is great and the conversations flow. Looking forward to listening to the next one!
