The Residency 2019: Volume Five

From April to September each year, BBATX curates a monthly residency highlighting the work of 10 to 15, Texas-based women and nonbinary visual and musical artists that create work and perform in our programs.

This year, join us at The Line Hotel Austin pool deck every first Thursday in April through September to enjoy art and a DJ set, celebrating the work of women artists in #BBATX’s 2019 residency. Dancing, swimsuits (optional) and it’s-almost-the-weekend behavior encouraged. :)

Free and open to the public, the fifth night of The Residency opens on August 1, 2019 from 8 PM to 11 PM on The LINE Austin’s pool deck. Learn more about the artists behind Volume Five below:

Leika  Leika is an Austin, Texas, based photographer whose collegiate studies in French and Literature inspire the philosophy, romanticism, and spirit of rebellion within her work. A modern romantic, her photographs explore the the gentle and chaotic wildness of nature both terrestrial and human, alongside the harmonious dichotomy of proverbial and literal darkness and light. Self taught in digital photography, Leika creates a classical feel with anachronistic details in her still life and portraits, inspired by painters such as Artemisia Gentileschi. Through her work, she seeks to embolden her audience to create, to share their unique perspectives and stories, and to answer the call to close the gap between the privileged elite and the systemically oppressed.

Double Trouble  Double Trouble is a DJ duo comprised of Erin Gentry (No Pasa Nada), and Lynn Metcalf (DJ What?!). Inspired by their strong connection and differing personalities, and working exclusively with vinyl, DT performs together in a song for song, battle style format, seeking to challenge and expand each other's preconceived notions of soundscape construction while searching for connective emotional threads in genres of music traditionally held separately. Double Trouble currently holds a residency at the Sahara Lounge producing Raw Sugar, a DJ showcase interpreting the concept of the slow jam, on the last Sunday of every month.

We provide 1500 opportunities to women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers per year. More than 15,000+ community members also annually attend our showcases, markets and dialogues—and in the last three years, our programs generated an additional $1million for the Austin economy. So, whether you apply to participate in one of our programs, attend our workshops, conferences and dialogues, or come out to a festival or market to support the community we’re building, you’re a member of this movement. All babes, all people, are welcome. :) Learn more at bossbabes.org.
