BEHIND ROCKING CHAIR SESSIONS....................................................

Maria Theresa Barbist and Elysa D. Batista are both locally based South Florida artists that collaborate to create Rocking Chair Sessions.

They originally met at the Bakehouse Art Complex in Wynwood, FL during their individual artist residencies in 2016.


The idea for Rocking Chair Sessions was born when in discussion of the diversity of artists that were found at the BAC, and other institutions in Miami. They wanted to increase access to interviews and provide an educational insight into these individuals. Thus RCS: ROCKING CHAIRS SESSIONS was created. A publicly accessible forum where one could find individual recordings describing the professions, media, and life of South Florida based creatives.


Launching their collaborative endeavor in 2017, Maria Theresa Barbist and Elysa D. Batista seek to amass a window into the lives and process of SoFla based professionals in the arts and give their voices a platform.
