Panels & Discussions

Last year, MANCC initiated a new archive residency program in honor of the late Dr. William R. Jones with Maria Bauman, multi-disciplinary artist, artistic director of MBDance, and community organizer, as the inaugural Fellow. Ms. Bauman returns to MANCC to continue her research, delving into the archives about and from the late Dr. William R. Jones.

During her second residency, Bauman, along with collaborators Audrey Hailes, Olivia Mozie, Rhapsody Stiggers and Embedded Writer/MANCC alumnus jumatatu poe, will further dive into her relationship with Dr. Jones as a former student, questioning and reconsidering her own assumptions about art making and socialization through engaging with Dr. Jones’ extensive collection of archived materials. Bauman again will work in the Special Collections and Archives reading room in Strozier Library, which houses Dr. Jones’ impressive archive, as well as MANCC’s dance studio, moving her practice into new contexts to meet the demands of Dr. Jones’ work.
