Community Arts – Infinite Possibilities
May 14 @ 11:00 am - 12:50 pm
Community Arts is happy to welcome Artist Anakaren Silva
In this photography workshop we will pull from our last week’s work from the “Thoughts Into Images” workshop to continue our artistic process into the following: create connections! We will spend the day taking pictures at the park of whatever we may relate to our inspiration board (doodle-filled paper). In this workshop we will use disposable film cameras to take the photographs and to learn about analog photographic processes as well. The pictures will be printed for us to see and play with the following week at the ““Take It Apart and Start Again” workshop, where we will take the day to play with all the art created in the past two weeks and talk about how to keep creating more! Pose!
Artist Anakaren Silva is a Mexican artist from Monterrey, Nuevo León currently based in Los Angeles who works primarily with photography and video. She pulls heavily from themes surrounding childhood, like memory, play, language and humor. Recently she has been working in the video essay format, with her latest project being a humorous soliloquy composed of media archives of dubbing gems, to try to verbalize in her own terms the relationship between America’s imperialist mode of media distribution and a way to subvert it’s consumption by re-coding their messages through Spanish dubbing. As for her photography practice– she actively shares her stills through an instagram archive, @tqmanaken
