The Future is on the Table #4
The Future is on the Table #4

 “… It’s not a playground. But it is a landscape for engagement. And when a mom thanks Jean-Marie Mauclet for letting them play, he smiles, shrugs and says, “It’s yours.” Art series in Jackson incites, inspires.  Displays purely rooted in Jackson.  by Sherry Lucas.        “The Future is on the Table #4″, 2nd project […]

Ten More Years on Penn
Ten More Years on Penn

“The concept of The Idea Furnace grew out of a recent artist residency at the glass center with Gwylene Gallimard and Jean Marie Mauclet. They had big architectural ideas for their exhibition “Ten More Years on Penn” but had no glass experience. They worked with artists at the glass center and challenged them to create […]

The Future is On the Table #3
The Future is On the Table #3

  “The most intimate and delightful convening I attended all year was The Future Is on the Table,… The remarkable thing about these two artists, is their concept of inclusion. They throw ideas into the air and then collaborate closely with whomever is willing to catch them. This strategy results in arts productions so diverse […]

Olympia
Olympia

In our “Introduction to 701CCA”, we were projecting how the installation of what, at the time, we had called “Impressions of Olympia” would develop. We had a three-month residency at 701 to produce a work having to do with the social and architectural history of the Olympia Cotton Mills and the operatives’ living quarters called […]

Conversations With Time
Conversations With Time

The performances of CONVERSATIONS WITH TIME at the 35th Anniversary of Alternate ROOTS in West Baltimore attempted to present the journey of the project, not as documentation but as a rehearsal in real life. They were very inclusive. They meant to be educational but not a ‘how to’ guide. They were close to chaos but […]

I Still Don’t Get It: Why Do They Want to be Rich Without Us?

I Still Don’t Get It: Why Do They Want to be Rich Without Us? This project started as a memorial to a housing complex, which was demolished a few years ago. Four hundred people were forced out.

Gaulart & Maliclet/Fast & French

SPOLETO 2013, “… After the Wednesday or Friday shows, a dinner at Gaulart & Mauclet, more popularly known as Fast and French, is in order. Designed by two artists as an experiment where diners are seated together at a curving, communal counter, Fast & French is all about the vibe and the camaraderie. It poses an […]

You Comin’
You Comin’

What we often call The Charleston Rhizome of Alternate ROOTS is centered on creating collaborative art works, which strengthen community. Our group is diverse in race, age, income, talent, education, professional occupation … and this is reflected in the activities and projects it initiates. We are activists, artists and educators. Diversity is our natural resource, […]

Charleston/Atlanta/Alaska Challenge
Charleston/Atlanta/Alaska Challenge

“All the projects I have been part of involve social exploration, collaboration, some feminism and a criticism of the general ‘world of the arts.’ Lately, involving targeted audiences has dictated the process and the product. It is a road, a dream or a necessity, for an artist, to invent new territories, where the status of […]

Please have a seat
Please have a seat

PLEASE HAVE A SEAT Five love-benches, built by us, painted in pastel colors. When two people sit, side by side, yet face to face, and start a conversation, they may explore the surface of the bench, left open between them. They will discover then, engraved into the wood, two “head to tail” sentences: one each. […]
