Real Time and Space is excited to host artist talks by Constance Hockaday, our Jan/Feb artist in residence, and new RTS studio member, Miguel Arzabe. Join us on Sunday, February 28th at 7pm!
Constance Hockaday is a Chilean American artist who grew up on the water in Port Isabel, Texas, 5 miles from where the Rio Grande River dumps into the Gulf of Mexico. She has created outsider maritime projects for more than 15 years, from a boat hotel the New York Times called “a New York City success story” to a floating peep show bobbing in the San Francisco harbor that highlighted the loss of spaces for the Bay Area’s queer community. Her most recent performance installation, “All These Darlings and Now Us,” commissioned by Southern Exposure in San Francisco, was described by the New York Times as a powerful “commentary on the forces of technification and gentrification roiling San Francisco.” Hockaday holds an MFA in Social Practice Art and a Masters in Conflict Resolution from Portland State University and BA from Prescott College. She is a 2014 TED Fellow and has received support from the San Francisco MOMA, City of Oakland, the East Bay Artist Fund, The Puffin Foundation, Flux Factory, and Southern Exposure.

He has had numerous residencies and awards including Headlands Center for the Arts, Montalvo Art Center, Vermont Studio Center, and Santa Fe Art Institute.
