Description: 

DRAWin festival 2018 - Day 2: Day of Workshops: Drawing, Sound, Movement

Wednesday 4 April 2018, 12-8pm. Fabrica Gallery, Brighton

Day Two of DRAWin festival will include five bookable workshops provided by international and local artists and performers. This year’s theme will focus on drawing in relation to sound and movement; an investigation of the sound of drawing not as a by-product, but as an added layer to the pieces. The workshops will explore drawing as performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, sound, dance, process and performance. Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. Workshops will target different groups and issues in drawing and performance and will allow the general public the opportunity to experience an art form first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field. There's no experience required to join the workshops and all abilities are welcomed.

Some materials will be supplied but if there are any materials of your own you would like to bring, please do.

All workshops are suitable for all ages including children and family audiences and for those with or without drawing/dance experience.

The program: The Summer School in Curatorial Practice will take place during the International Architecture 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.

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 and a publication.

The Summer School includes visits of specific art venues all over the city of Venice during the International Architecture 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.
