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.
