Think making collage is just about sitting around with a pair of scissors and cutting up old magazines? No way! Today’s generation of activist artists is blowing things up, making things big, and pushing the boundaries of what’s possible when you print, tear, cut, and combine. From wheat paste to public space, artist Yashua Klos leads participants through the world of printmaking and two-dimensional design, creating large-scale artwork that blurs the lines between murals, prints, collages, and more.
Everyone always says it’s what’s inside a person that counts. But how do you capture the inner beauty of a person when it’s the outside that seems to get all of the attention? And how do we make the inside into a compelling artwork when so much of what’s underneath our skin is a gross, gooey, sloppy, bloody mess? Led by artist Kerry Downey, this workshop takes participants behind the scenes of our physical shells and inside the seldom seen nooks and crannies of the human form. Got guts?
Glazed & Confused
Like getting your hands dirty? Want to make art that’s strange, compelling, and creative but also serves a purpose? Join artist Leah Wolff for a hands-on studio-based exploration of three- dimensional art using clay and porcelain. Pull, press, throw, and spin your way along uncharted artistic terrain. Participants work together to push the boundaries of what this incredibly versatile— and moldable—material is capable of doing. Confused? Don’t be!
The world is full of codes. Secret codes, genetic codes, dress codes, computer codes—they’re the instructions and routines that govern our lives and technologies. But as long as there have been codes there have been artists ready to break them, play with them, and reinvent them. Working with leaders from Special Project Office, explore how artists have crafted generative artworks from instructions, codes, and computing. Generate art that generates itself, and unpack the systems around you!
