Art & Assemblage Workshop: the Re-Contextualizing of Objects

Register Now   WORKSHOP FULL

Assemblage is an archaeological term meaning a group of different artifacts found in association with one another that is in the same context.

In this 5 session workshop we will look at artists such as Joseph Cornell, Marcel Duchamp, Ed Kienholz, Eva Hesse, Alfonso Ossorio, and Bruce Conner, among others. Outsider art will be discussed as related to assemblage. Assemblage is a medium that starts everyone on equal footing, and because of the absence of a measuring stick of talent or advancement in ability, assemblage is the medium of choice by many Outsider artists. Techniques using adhesives, rivets and other methods of fastening will be demonstrated.
