Project Row Houses, Houston
Seven of the original row houses are dedicated art spaces, hosting unique, interactive installations by artists from around the world. Each “Round” of installations lasts four months, and focuses on a particular theme that portrays, reflects and/or involves the surrounding Third Ward community.
Round 35 embraces the approach of Project Row Houses’ early days when the rounds were not thematic and each selected artist was provided a house to create and explore freely within the context of the historic Third Ward community.
Communograph is a multi-platform art project, initiated and organized by Ashley Hunt. Hunt developed the title, “Communograph, ” combining “community” (communo-) with “writing” (-graph) so as to ground this research in “a writing of community from the perspective of the community itself.”

“No longer bound to a sense of having to restrict one’s focus, material, or genre, many contemporary artists of color move back and forth between past and present, between history and fiction, between art and ritual, between high art and popular culture, and between Western and non-Western influences. In doing so they participate in multiple communities. “
-From English Is Broken Here by Coco Fusco, participating artist
