This summer we invited Lauren to be the 2018 Portland in the Streets Artist-in-Residence. Lauren supported the Block Party Program to create a set of activities and low-fi projects that residents could do at their block party. The intent of the Artist-in-Residence project was to create tools for engaging your neighborhood and for getting to know the people around you.
Lauren in interested in exploring ways artist's ideas can be utilized outside of museums and institutions to support people getting together and exchanging with their communities.
Lauren is receiving a Master in Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Contemporary Art Practices at Portland State University. Lauren Moran creates interdisciplinary projects that are often participatory, collaborative and co-authored. Taking the form of conversation, publication, education, printmaking or curation, the work aims to experiment with and question the systems we are all embedded in by organizing situations of connection, openness and non-hierarchical learning.
