Workshop: Collaborative Image-Making
Time & Location
About The Event
Instructor: James Kirkpatrick
The intention of this workshop is to give artists a glimpse into a way of creating which is an alternative to traditional methods of working involving chance, trust, accidents, community and letting go of the preciousness of a specific work. In this workshop I will present a brief example of historical collaborative drawings and paintings. We will begin with a classic exercise in image making called the exquisite corpse. Then we will split off into smaller groups and move onto larger compositions of collaborative intuitive drawing and mark making with two to three participants per piece. This is a public workshop that is available through LDN Convergence, a two-week long multidisciplinary artist residency here at TAP.
Bio: James Kirkpatrick works in a variety of media including drawing, painting, avant-garde hip-hop and electronic music, sound sculptures, murals, zines, comics, and mask-making. His paintings and sculptures incorporate sculptural, kinetic, and auditory elements, as he combines his 2D aesthetic with circuit-bent electronic toys. Likewise, compositions written on modified Gameboys and circuit-bent sounds have become part of his music and on-stage performances as Thesis Sahib. James is represented by the Michael Gibson Gallery in London Ontario.
