From July 5, 2016 to July 22, 2016, students will learn the visual art-making techniques and strategies of an invited Lead Artist, while also working with theater artists on spoken word works that amplify understanding of the visual output.
Together students will collaboratively conceive and mount a major gallery show at Artspace which will be on view all summer.
This year, Artspace has invited Brooklyn-based artist Wardell Milan (Yale MFA, Photography, ’04) to lead the program.
Starting with the construction of small dioramas made from photographs, the students will work with Wardell to transform these environments into theater-sized stage sets, which they will document through photography and activate through performance. Through this project, the students will sift through the social and emotional politics of the world they navigate and participate in to explore identity, while learning how to construct stage sets, design exhibitions, and devise narratives based in a visual language. The students will all receive an apprentice work stipend and on the final day of the program.
Deadline to apply is June 1, please find the application below.
