Workshops with artist Beatriz Cortez
Saturday, May 25, 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Workshop participants will spend their time working with Los Angeles-based artist Beatriz Cortez learning firsthand about ancient indigenous forms of construction in relation to her installation The Lakota Porch: A Time Traveler, included in The Autotopographers exhibition.
We will explore the construction of cairns, or markers with rocks, and we will talk about different methods and technologies for piling rocks, as well as conceptual understandings about permanence and mobility, nomadism and fixed demarcation of territories and structures. In addition, we will talk about ancient concepts of geometry, math, space, and gravity.
Stretch your imagination and have some hands-on fun with exhibition-inspired projects in our free studio. Drop in anytime during posted hours and collaborate on community works of art. Children under the age of ten must be accompanied by an adult.
