Community Arts – Take It Apart and Start Again
May 21 @ 11:00 am - 12:50 pm
Community Arts is happy to welcome Artist Anakaren Silva
Take It Apart and Start Again
In the last workshop of the three-part series we will meet at the park to finally see the pictures taken the past week. We will be able to play with collage to cut them and paste them around with other stuff if we wish to, even to draw on top of them. We will imagine new ways to give life to new art and the conversation will invite us to ask ourselves: why am I making art? This is a day fully dedicated to inspiration and the art we will create in the future!
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
