VIRTUAL WORKSHOP
Fluid Sculpture: object making, installation and performance

Apr 19 - May 19, 2021

Monthly- Third Monday & Wednesday, 3PM-4PM MST

Concept

Anderson Ranch invites you to join our online community to participate in a stimulating and interactive Critical Dialog Program about the spacious world of contemporary sculpture, installation and performance. Through lectures, readings and discussions with leading contemporary artists, this monthly virtual course explores process, spacial considerations and community activations/engagements. Topics for discussion and exploration include maintaining inspiration within a studio practice, intentional materials choices and strategies for collaboration, participation and intervention. All are welcome to join us in this conversation.


January 18 & 20, 2021 – Arthur Simms – An Artist in a Time of Isolation

Arthur Simms tells his personal story of maintaining a studio practice while in isolation through using available resources and motivating himself to continue to develop a visual narrative through found objects. Arthur is best known for his found-object sculptures composed of everyday objects such as bicycle wheels, bottles, stones, chairs, rope and wire, his work connects the disparate elements of the diasporic experience.


February 15 & 17, 2021- Kalup Linzy – Crossing Boundaries and Merging Media

Kalup Linzy discusses how his work explores cultural identities, gender fluidity, and boundaries across various mediums—including video, performance, photography, collage, fashion, television, music, and film.


March 15 & 17, 2021 – Cesar Cornejo – Social Practice and the Studio

Cesar Cornejo addresses the relationship between the solitude of studio practice and the collaborative spirit of social based practice, focusing on how each feeds into the other and their particular challenges and possibilities when tackling larger problems like a global pandemic.


April 19 & 21, 2021 – Kelly Taylor Mitchell – Sensory Installation and its Potential for Creating an Immersive Experience

Kelly Taylor Mitchell discusses the elements of an installation that can entrench a participant in time, space, smell, texture and imagery to captivate both physically and emotionally.


May 17 & 19, 2021 – Gracelee Lawrence – Digital Erotics: The Biocyborg’s Dilemma

Gracelee Lawrence explores the notion of biocyborgism in the tensions between digital and physical materiality. Using the lens of the erotic, or being in relation to the unknown, the idea of biocyborgism is embodied in the fantasy or human evolution choosing soft rather than hard technology.

Surface to Form: Panel Building Techniques

Austin Ballard

Tuition $1,160
Code S0504-24

This exploratory workshop is for artists of all skill levels interested in an organic approach to constructing voluminous sculptures that are lightweight and strong. Students are introduced to a foundational process of panel building that reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright’s Textile Block Construction, a method that is both architecturally exacting and fluid. By combining design and spontaneous approaches, students invent their own elaborate sculptural forms using epoxy clay and a combination of porous substrates such as latch-hook vinyl and burlap. Employing this unique process of draping and patterning, students follow an organic “call and response” approach to form building.

Master Class: The Engineer and Madam Bricolage are Lovers

Sheila Pepe

Tuition $1,270
Code S0806-24

In the early 1990s "Bricolage" was heavily referenced as a method of discourse, based on ideas found in the works of French theorists Claude Levi-Straus and Jacque Derrida. Thirty years later the term has become ubiquitous, naming entrepreneurial theory, restaurants, and architecture firms. Lifting small quotes from original texts, Sheila leads a master class in her favorite studio methods of accumulation, construction, and "taking apart and putting- back together," all the while subjecting outcomes to tests of complexity, legibility, and aesthetic resolve. Open to all media from metal to found materials to fabric, this class encourages participants to come with their own set of studio practices and concerns, but to be looking for an opportunity to grow and expand their work.
