TWO - DAYS WORKSHOP LED BY  GRZEGORZ BRAL

INTENSIVE EXPLORATION OF YOUR VOICE

Two days of intensive exploration of your Voice. Voice does not exist away from Body, and we will be exploring this particular relationship between the two. This time with more focus on sound, on words, on song. It feels easy to stretch our bodies, but can we stretch our voice? To stretch your voice means to broaden the way we use it.

This workshop will give a Chance to explore the voice in relations with movement, rhythm, imagination and spatial awarness.

Contemplating the use of our voice through series of different, yet simple physical and vocal excercises. Sometimes people say "an organic use of the voice" or "natural voice" or "freeing your voice". I believe that one of the greatest tools for our voice is ... Imagination.

The workshop is designed for performers who have already had some vocal training.

Video & Installation Art with Laure Prouvost

Info & bookings: https://www.campfr.com/laureprouvost

In 2013, Laure Prouvost won the prestigious Turner Prize for her work Wantee - a video installation telling the true/fictional story of her grandfather's relationship with Kurt Schwitters. The work, commissioned by Grizedale Arts and the Tate Britain, is a poignant example of Laure's immersive filmmaking style, her tangling of narratives and her bewildering montage echnique. Words separate from their normal meanings; objects, imagery, drawings and symbols combine in dizzying combinations; the artist tunnels through established truth and fiction, creating an onslaught of sensory and logical stimulus. She has exhibited at Carlier Gebauer (Berlin), Tate Britain (London), Consortium Dijon, MMK Frankfurt, Kunstmuseum Luzern, CCA Laznia (Gdansk), Walker Art Centre (Minneapolis), Witte de With CCA (Rotterdam), Hangar Biccoca (Milan), State of Concept (Athens), Fahrenheit (Los Angeles), Haus Der Kunst (Munich), e-flux (NYC), CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, New Museum (NYC), Extra City Kunsthal (Antwerp), The Hepworth (Wakefield) and at many other institutions around the globe.

Laure's films are often combined with sculptural/3D installations, creating immersive environments in which her unruly conceptual ruptures can unfold - her 2015 work Dear dirty dark drink drift down deep droll (in der dole) starts with a bookshelf stacked with poetry and travel tomes - the bookshelf hides a secret door which plunges disorientated visitors into a pitch-black corridor, through which they will eventually feel their way to the screening room.

Laure's course will burrow deep into the labyrinthine business of conceptual installation art, examining a diverse range of aspects influencing her practice, and the field in general; examining key ideas, moments and questions from the history of conceptual installation art; exploring technical possibilities, techniques and the position of technology in conceptual art. Group sessions in our state-of-the-art classrooms will cover a wide range of topics, and individual sessions will develop your practice and projects.

Modern Composition with Gavin Bryars

Description: 

Info/bookings: https://www.campfr.com/gavinbryars

Gavin Bryars is without a doubt one of the world's most celebrated living composers. He emerged to the musical establishment in the early sixties, playing bass with improvisers Derek Bailey and Tony Oxley - his relationship with improvisation was short lived, and by the late 60's he was working with John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and John White. His first major works - The Sinking of the Titanic (1969), originally released on Brian Eno's Obscure label in 1975, and Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (1971) - were released in new versions in the 1990s, selling over a quarter of a million copies.

Opera and ballet have formed important strands in Gavin's practice - he has written four full-length operas, working with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Mainz Opera, Long Beach Opera and the Opera de Paris, alongside such renowned directors as Robert Wilson, Georges Delnon and Jean Lacorrnerie. Hi has worked with Opera North Projects and the Royal Shakespeare Company since 2006, and his collaboration with Merce Cunningham, Biped, toured worldwide with the Cunningham Company.

Elsewhere in Gavin's extensive catalogue of works can be found vocal works written for The Hilliard Ensemble, and commissions for Bournemouth Sinfonietta, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Primavera Chamber Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. His background in the visual arts has resulted in works for the opening of the Tate Gallery in Liverpool, an installation in the Chateau d'Oiron, commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture, a work for the Tate Gallery St Ives, and a project for the Valencia Architecture Biennale. This visual arts affinity has also led to highly successful collaborations with David Byrne, Bruce MacLean, Bill Culbert, Juan Munoz, Christian Boltanski, Will Alsop and others.

This course will take Gavin's work as a starting point to examine compositional forms and strategies, working closely with the group's existing practice and methods, with the aim of each student developing a finished work for performance at the end of the session. Students from all musical backgrounds are welcome, whether classically trained, improvisors, sound artists, installation artists, conceptual artists or favouring any other approach. The session will include:

Individual tuition sessions, examining and developing each student's existing work and practiceGroup sessions examining different types of musical material, including vocal music (both solo and ensemble), string music, opera, music for dance, composing in relation to music from the past, and arranging the music of othersEvening events showing Gavin's work in opera and filmDevelopment of each student's work for final performance by the group at the end of the course

The sessions will be accompanied by optional outdoors activities led by CAMP crew, including guided mountaineering, visits to local beauty points, and downtime to hang out, relax, enjoy the local food and wine, and learn informally from Gavin, the CAMP crew, and your fellow students. Following the course, further support of the work developed will come in the form of performance and releasing opportunities via Fuse Art Space and our range of in-house record labels."

TOWARDS: 2019 (contemporary dance workshops)

Share

Type:

City:

Description: 

TOWARDS is a cycle of intensive workshops that include physical praxis, evening lectures, video screenings, and live performances. It’s the metaphor of aiming at something - to expose and engage ourselves in physical investigations and conceptual challenges that can foster creativity and encourage discoveries. TOWARDS see pedagogy as a continuous intellectual provocation, an occasion for inspiration through paradoxes and awakenings and as a desire to overturn common sense and question what we have learned.

TOWARDS offers the occasion to explore the work of renowned international artists, gaining an insight into their practice and methodologies as well the philosophical and poetic worlds that trigger their creative research.
The project started in August 2018 with Julyen Hamilton’s workshop, ‘Making Dances - compositional and poetic richness’.
In 2019, the workshops will be organized in three blocks of two weeks. Each week will include:
- a lecture for sharing theoretical reflections
- evening video screenings
- a final performative event

TOWARDS is curated by Francesco Scavetta and organized by Vitlycke - Centre for Performing Arts, in collaboration with Sekoia - Artes Performativas.

AT THE VENICE BIENNALE SUMMER SCHOOL IN CURATORIAL STUDIES VENICE OPEN CALL

Share

Type:

City:

Description: 

4th June – 3rd September 2019

The School for Curatorial Studies is an ambitious and challenging project promoted since 2004 and conceived as a school committed to experimentation and interdisciplinary thinking. The main goals are to spread the knowledge in the field of visual arts and to introduce the students to the professions related to the art world, focusing on contemporary curatorial theory and practice and contemporary museology. The School’s activities are meant for all those interested and passionate in art, graduated students or professionals who want to deepen their knowledge and improve their practical skills. The School’s teaching staff is formed by Italian and international professionals, scholars, historians and art critics of recognized experience. Among them: Matt Williams (curator), Angela Vettese (art critic), Luca Massimo Barbero (Peggy Guggenheim Collection), Francesca Colasante (Pinault Foundation), Andrea Goffo (Found. Prada), Nicola Lees (Serpentine London).

 

The program:

The Summer School in Curatorial Practice will take place during the International Art Biennale Venice. With an interdisciplinary approach, the course provides practical training and experience within museums and exhibition settings. Its international faculty includes curators and museum professionals, artists and critics. The course is designed to increase students understanding of the intellectual and technical tasks of the curator figure. English-taught lectures cover both theoretical and practical topics that go from the history of contemporary visual arts and practices of exhibition-making, to Exhibition Management. The students will participate in weekly activities, such as artist studio visits, tours of exhibition spaces, networking events and workshops. The program culminates with the set up of the exhibition.

The Summer School includes visits of specific art venues all over the city of Venice during the International Art Biennale. A series of selected case studies will offer the students an opportunity to observe the development of contemporary art. The School’s goal is to align these specific theoretical lectures with a practical approach. Besides the theoretical lectures, a series of laboratories and workshops aims to introduce the students to the work of critical text writing, press releases and to structure all the different aspects of publishing. The students will be offered the possibility of a gallery training and of setting up together - with one of our tutors, their exhibition in Venice, as a final project of the course.

Description: 

This course maps the theories and discourses that inform the production and reception of contemporary art, providing a supportive environment to develop your practice and articulate your ideas on the production, exhibition and interpretation of art.

Through lectures, seminars, tutorials and gallery visits the course will familiarise you with key concepts and historical transformations that underpin contemporary art production and reception. We will look at the impact of key philosophical, cultural and political discourses on art practice, and examine different theoretical perspectives and critical debates. You will extend and develop your ability to discuss, write about and judge contemporary art. You will be supported in contextualising your practice with extensive feedback in tutorials and workshops. You will also develop your skills in writing artist’s statements, critical reviews and/or exhibition proposals.

What kind of knowledge and skills do contemporary artists need? Who is art for? How do we recognise art? What distinguishes art from other forms of cultural production? How does the global economy affect the production and circulation of art? Is art a commodity? What is the social role of art? Can art bring about social change? Can art be critical? Are artists expected to push social boundaries? What is critical art, critical of? These are some of the questions we will address as we explore the historical and critical contexts in which contemporary art is made, circulated, viewed and understood.

Course Outcomes
By the end of the course you will have a good grasp of the historical underpinnings and current debates in contemporary art. You will be able to develop, articulate and contextualise your practice.
