(What Words Mean): A Text-Based Art Workshop with Alyson Provax
Please join Archer Gallery & Clark Art Talks for an art workshop with currently exhibiting artist Alyson Provax! Alyson's stunning solo show "Out of Nothing" continues at Archer Gallery through November 8 at www.archergallery.space.
Zoom Meeting ID: 836 8762 1473
Alyson Provax will lead (What Words Mean): A Text Based Art Workshop - an exercise in using what you have to change the meaning of text with available tools and materials.
Bring your computer (or typewriter, pen and paper, or other favorite tools) to learn from Alyson through making a piece of text-based art that emphasizes, undermines, complicates, or redirects the focus of a phrase. She will show examples of text-based art and concrete poetry, then lead you in thinking about the ways that changing the physical appearance of the text can change its meaning, deepening your relationship to the phrase and connecting us to the inherent instability of language. The ways of thinking discussed in this workshop are designed to be useful for artists and designers and expand the enjoyment of text for everyone.
