Domestic Spaces Laboratory Workshop led by artists Pablo Jansana and Angelica Teuta
Date: Saturday April 16, 2016, 1 – 4 pm
Location: Kandor 13, 21-38 44th Road, Long Island City, NY, 11101
Cost: $30 per person. 30 people maximum. Workshop supplies included.
This workshop addresses the intersection between contemporary art and domestic spaces. We will examine how modernist concepts and design transform the domestic landscape and vice versa. The intercultural heritage that emerges from one context to another will also be addressed.
What represents domesticity within a contained space and how is it presented through design, architecture and art? What is home? What do we consider domestic?
This workshop is led by talented artists, each with different methods for creating art. The goal is to support creative development and generate knowledge from team work. Pablo and Angelica will share their expertise about art, architecture and design, as well as their personal practice. With their guidance, participants will be encouraged to create 3d projects with the tools, supplies and recycled materials provided. Participants can bring their own tools too, depending on the project they’d like to develop.
Kandor 13 is a spacious venue devoted to the development of collaborative projects and people are invited to take advantage of the creative environment. Participants are encouraged to be active in the space and engage with each other.
