Contextualizing Your Artwork with hannah_g

  • Thursday, November 22, 2018
  • 7:00pm – 9:30pm
  • MAWA, 611 Main Street

Presented in partnership with Creative Manitoba

Didactics, brochures, self-published catalogues, artist talks, documentation, etc. How can providing context enhance the experience of the artwork? How much should an artist tell her audience? This workshop will give an overview of different ways to provide your audience with “a way in” to your work and deepen the experience of it, including everything from institutional standards for labelling, to experimental tours, to the blurb that appears on the back of an exhibition flyer.

$10 for members of MAWA or Creative Manitoba; $20 for non-members. No need to register, just show up! People of all genders welcome!
