Naming the Self is a multimedia art series created by Isabel Crespo and Loré Yessuff. The project aims to ponder and process the complexities of identity through the exploration of different artistic mediums. Their collaboration was born out of a shared appreciation for subtlety and self-reflection, and a need to connect intimately with themselves and those around them.
‘A Gathering’, the first part of this series, will be an immersive and thoughtful event, showcasing poems, essays, videos, music, and a collaborative zine, all created by Isabel and Loré
Both of Us is a duo that performs co-written compositions and improvisations. They're currently based in Denton, TX, and will be releasing their first album this Fall. They draw inspiration from modern jazz, contemporary classic music, and poetry. Weaving together their diverse influences, they've created a repertoire that is both intimate and inviting.
Come hear them perform at the Denton Community Market!
Many artists have pushed the boundaries of their art forms – while also pushing on social norms as well. Friday, May 10th, Art & Seek presents a State of the Arts public discussion about change makers and risk takers in the Denton arts community. Isabel will be one of the featured panelists at this event.
