EXQUISITE CORPSE WORKSHOP!
CORE Contemporary is happy to announce its first “Exquisite Corpse” workshop led by artist, Nancy Good.
So, what is an exquisite corpse? Historically, it’s an artistic technique invented by the Surrealists who wanted to access parts of the mind repressed by societal rules. Without a preconceived notion of the final image, artists/participants produce a collaborative drawing, painting or collage by folding the paper or canvas and adding images or patterns that are unseen by the other contributing artists. This allows a fantastical parade of spontaneous hybrid creatures and unexpected juxtapositions to be created. The results are novel, exciting, unsettling, and most often filled with passion and surprising synchronicity.
Contributing separately, one artist will create a “head,” another a “body,” and a third will create “feet.” Each artist will collaborate on three exquisite corpse creations and will take one home as their own work of fine art.
Date: Saturday, October 20th, 6-9pm Workshop Fee: $75 (must be paid prior to class) Material needs: Your imagination! All other materials included Class Size Limit: 15 people Age Limit: Adult (18 years and above) (Note: we are scheduling a separate children/youth workshop)
Workshop will take place at CORE Contemporary, 900 E. Karen Avenue, Suite D222, Las Vegas, NV 89109. Our space is located in the “D” Building of New Orleans Square within the historic Sahara Commercial Center.
Beginning Wednesdays, starting July 18th, at both 12pm and 6pm, we are starting our Convo@Core informal arts and culture chat series.
Next dates: October 17th, November 14th, and December12th
With the intent of fostering deeper relationships and dialogue within our community, Convo@Core will take place monthly and will provide an opportunity for informal, relaxed and engaging arts and culture chats on a variety of topics important to artists, arts fans, and the arts community as a whole. Diverse subjects will include: artist development, how to exhibit, how to begin collecting art, submissions to calls for art, creating an artist's statement, collaboration, etc.
To enhance the relaxed feel of these chats, envision a picnic on blankets where we are sharing moments and creating memories with friends. For those with other physical needs, additional seating will also be provided. Feel free to bring a brown bag meal and a beverage, too!
