Berkeley resident and Marine Veteran of the  Gulf War,  Ehren Tool crafts ceramic cups with graphic images of soldiers or bombs, and hopes to inspire honest conversations about war and its implications.

SOE_Interchange_Inv_low_res_Page_2I N T E R C H A N G E is organized by Space One Eleven (SOE) and is an artist exchange between SOE in Birmingham, Alabama and Project Row Houses (PRH) in Houston, Texas where the two organizations “put each in the place of the other.”  In March 2013 SOE sent Alabama artists to PRH to create site specific work in the row houses.  PRH will likewise send Texas artists to Birmingham in November 2013 to create new work in SOE’s galleries.

The exhibiting artists from Alabama are Derek Cracco and Jürgen Tarrasch, and the Texas artists are Darin Forehand, and  M’Kina Tapscott.

Somos Humanos/We Are Human

by José Torres-Tama

Torres-Tama’s work documents the post-Katrina public demonstrations organized by the Congress of Day Laborers, and explores the struggle of New Orleans Latino immigrant workers in defense of their human rights.

José Torres-Tama is Space One Eleven’s 2013 artist in residence.  During his residency, Torres-Tama will be lecturing and conducting workshops at universities and organizations.
