Women & Their Work will present a virtual panel discussion and online reception with exhibiting artist Ariel René Jackson and special guests. TalkAbout is a program that facilitates casual conversations with artists and the people who inspire them.

"A Welcoming Place" by Jackson is a film-based exhibition that contemplates what it might look like to forecast the welcoming status of a place. Forecasting, the artist argues, is the product of “taking temperature” which includes gathering individual testimonies throughout an area. These testimonies can be understood as shared collective knowledge and data of warnings and affirmations relative to the history of systemic violence in that place. The exhibition weaves interviews, research, image, video, animation, and sculpture to deliver a poetic visualization of shared knowledge about East Austin.
