Organisation:

A three-week, virtual/online workshop with Kolaj Institute in July & August 2022
Deadline to apply: Sunday, July 17, 2022

The practice of collage takes on many forms. A practice will be shaped by the goals of the artist and what they want to achieve with their artwork. It will also be informed by the choice of material, scale, and subject matter. A collage practice is also informed by the history of artists who came before and how an artist chooses to be in dialogue or opposition with their creative ancestors. A working understanding of one’s practice is critical to one’s professional and artistic development.

Intended as a clinic for working artists at any level, participants in this workshop will explore how they go about making art and putting it out into the world. How to make a living as an artist? How to get your work seen? How to get an exhibition? How to get reviewed? How to make a life for yourself as an artist? What does that even mean? These are some of the challenges artists face when they want to take their art practice to the next level. 

Participants will explore critical concepts and collage taxonomies as a way to develop and refine the language they use to talk about their own practice and to develop a broad view of the creative landscape in which they operate. How does choice of material inform how the artwork is exhibited? How does one speak about their process so that it is understood by other art professionals and the general public? How can one use art history to create a critical context for one’s artwork?

Participants will finish the workshop with a deeper understanding of their practice, a strong statement of practice that can be used to communicate with curators, editors, and art professionals; a portfolio of consistent artwork (or a plan to make one); and tools for growing or developing their practice.

EXHIBITION OR A PAVILION AT THE (VENICE) BIENNALE.

Everything you need to know about curating and organizing an exhibition or a pavilion at the (Venice) Biennale.

The Venice Biennale is a large-scale international contemporary art exhibition. In early May, thousands of art-world denizens descend in the city for the opening of a new edition of the Biennale, the closely watched pageant of contemporary art that has been running—with a few interruptions—since 1895. The Biennale is arguably the most prestigious exhibition in the world, filled with history and also cloaked in myth.

The preview days brings 25,000 artists, collectors, curators, museum directors and journalists into the city, followed by 600,000 visitors in the six months after. For this reason it is extremely important to know how everything works.

What is the Venice Biennale and why everybody wants to be present. Identification of the keys points that all participants need to know before facing such import event.

Session 2. 14.10.2022

First step the location. How to find the ideal location. Even though the city is small, for the Venice Biennale you need to be in a good quarter. How to find the right location. Prices. The place makes the difference.

Session 3. 18.10.2022

Step 2. What do you need to know about your location. The exhibition space is in the Arsenale? Inside of the Biennale? Then is very important to know which are the rules to respect, the permissions you need and the best suppliers you can get.

Session 4. 21.10.2022

Organizing your event in a place located in the city: the things changes and there are other permissions you need to provide, rules to respect, and of course the suppliers.

Body painting. Personal History. Performance

Workshop with KV Duong

The workshop will focus on strategies and ideas on how to weave one’s life history into your practice, specifically in a performative context. KV will introduce his practice and share sources of ideas and experimentation. Participants will get a demonstration and then try out themselves the following topics: using your body as a paint brush, using sound sourced from youtube and real life (e.g., your voice) and looping the audio, using video projection and video looping/ layering.

Technical requirement: Smart phone with free app ‘Meitu’ downloaded

KV Duong (b.1980 Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam) is a London-based artist with a practice that spans painting, sculpture, and performance. Duong grew up in Canada to Chinese Vietnamese parents displaced by the Vietnam War. In his work he explores themes of migration and cultural assimilation, through a re-examination of his parents’ and his own experiences. War trauma and integration correlate with the artist’s coming out as a gay Asian man.

Duong is a self-taught artist with a background in structural engineering. He has performed at Stockholm Supermarket International Art Fair and at various London venues including Raymond Revue Bar. Duong will have his first UK institutional exhibition at the Migration Museum in April 2022.

From Drawing to Painting Live

Workshop with Ram Samocha

This workshop with Draw to Perform's director Ram Samocha will focus the shift from drawing to painting live. The workshop will concentrate on the connection between sharing the process and layering the marks. It will also combine between elements of movement and stillness while making marks and using sound. Participants will experiment with this performative art practice and talk about possible options of working and creating art in real time.

Ram Samocha is a multi-disciplinary artist who currently resides in Brighton, UK. Samocha’s work combines drawing with video, installation, sound, and live performance. Samocha often mixes modern and traditional drawing techniques while searching for new ways to combine between 2D and 3D work. Samocha is the founder of Draw to Perform, an international gathering of artists and theorists involved in drawing performance. Samocha’s work has been recognized nationally and internationally and his work is part of various museums and private collections.

Rock Band with Deerhoof

Category:

Country:

Eligibility:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 06/10/2021 - 2021-10-11
    
Labelled by Pitchfork as "the best band in the world" and the New York Times as "one of the most original rock bands to have come along in the last decade", Deerhoof is Greg Saunier, Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich and Ed Rodriguez. Kicking off in San Francisco in the mid-90s, the band have evolved through lineups and styles, tirelessly probing the outer limits of rock, pop and noise. They've toured with Radiohead, Flaming Lips, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beck, curated Sonic City festival in Belgium, headlined Big Ears Festival, and released over 20 albums. Like Pitchfork said, best band in the world. Meanwhile, the institutions of modern music academia have slowly but surely focused their gaze on the band - Deerhoof's genre irreverance, unbridled invention and unique approach to ensemble playing cannot be ignored as a valuable asset of the avant-garde.

This workshop is an opportunity to spend five days in the epic Pyrenean mountains with Deerhoof, learning, discussing, developing your playing, building new musical connections and opening your rock band mind. It's about playing technique, improvisation, collaboration, composition, space, interaction and listening - all the things that make an ensemble work. Over five days, a small group of adventurous players will split down into ensembles, develop playing techniques and musical interaction skills, building new work every day under the guidance of the four members of Deerhoof, ending each day with a performance and feedback session. In the downtime we'll hang out, listen to music, watch films, drink wine, swim in the river and hike in the forests and peaks of the Pyrenees.

The workshop is open to people of all musical abilities, and players of all instruments (including traditional rock band stuff but also computers, field recordings or anything else). Throughout the workshop our extensive recording facilities will be available for use, and we'll work towards gathering recordings for a final release on CAMP Editions.
