ATC Video Now Online: Rick Lowe

Rick Lowe finished the Fall 2014 season of the Art, Technology and Culture Colloquium: Art, Technology and Activism, held in conjunction with the Berkeley Center for New Media, the Arts, Research Center, and the David Brower Center. Rick offered great insight into how we define art in his talk "Social and Community Engaged Work: The Genuine and the Artificial." This talk was co-presented by the Regents Lecture Series.

Rick Lowe is an artist and community organizer and founder of Project Rowhouses, a community-based arts and culture organization in one of Houston’s oldest African-American neighborhoods. In September, 2014, Lowe received a MacArthur Foundation “genius award” for his visionary work in purchasing and restoring twenty-two shotgun houses to create an arts venue and community support center.
