Join educator CJ Mitchell and writer Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves for a workshop inspired by Kahlil Robert Irving’s ceramic sculptures and digital collages, on view in the exhibition Projects: Kahlil Robert Irving. Through close looking, discussion, collage making, and reflective writing prompts, participants are encouraged to slow down their viewing process and consider the details that comprise a whole work of art.
Participants and facilitators will work together to examine and engage with the exhibition to generate ideas that will be translated into 2D, 3D, and/or written forms of expression. Participants will receive a suggested list of materials in advance of the workshop so they can make their own collages during the session. No prior art-making experience is necessary.
This program is free, open to all, and takes place on Zoom. Register today.
Slow Motion, Slow Build, Slow Read is presented in collaboration with MoMA.
Suggested for use for the 2021–22 exhibition Projects: Kahlil Robert Irving organized by The Studio Museum in Harlem and MoMA.
