In the workshop Containers for Hardship, artist Golnar Adili will explore how boxes can serve as containers for objects and memories. Participants are invited to bring printed matter and small sentimental objects to contribute to the process, which will juxtapose and distort image, text, and space in new ways.
This program is part of the series Artistic Practice: Skill-Sharing. For this series, invited artists and cultural producers share techniques they have learned and experiment with creative methods of exchanging knowledge and conveying experience.
Please Note: The workshop is four hours long, participants should plan to be present for the entire session. Light refreshments will be served.
