Address issues affecting you within your community, in the nation, or across the globe in this 4 hour poster-making workshop with Aphra Behn and Guerrilla Girls On Tour. The workshop begins with a discussion of the intersection of activism and art. Participants engage in sharing ideas about what makes a good piece of protest art, while the Girls share the evolution and philosophy behind some of their most famous posters and street theater actions. Participants break out into small groups to work collaboratively on creating a new work of activist art. Works in progress are then presented and discussed. The workshop ends with a planning session that walks participants through the process of distributing their new activist art works. Topics in this workshop include the art of collaboration, how to gather stats, generate ideas, fund projects, ensure response and guarantee momentum. “Turn your Attitude to Action” also sheds light on the use of storytelling to weave together the fabric of a movement designed to effect change. For anyone with an interest and/or passion for combing activism and art.

Description: 

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.

When Google's Tilt Brush launched in 2016, digital artists hurled themselves at it - with its powerful control of textures, volumes and geometry, Tilt Brush was rapidly proven as the most versatile tool around for creating immersive virtual reality artwork, environments and experiences. The same year, Bjork launched "Bjork Digital", her ground-breaking exhibition of 360-degree VR music videos accompanying tracks from her album Vulnicura. It was a pinnacle year for VR, but Google were stepping into a rich, existing scene - artists had been working towards the creation of VR works since Morton Heilig's Sensorama (1956), Myron Krueger's VIDEOPLACE (1975), the StereoGraphics company's experiments throughout the 80s, SEGA VR and Nintendo Virtual Boy in the 90s, and the arrival of sophisticated and lightweight VR tech in the early 2010's.

The current generation of hardware and software allow for the fast, fluid creation of VR worlds (and the insertion of AR elements into the real world) which can be mass-experienced, blurring the limits of gaming, reality, storytelling and art. Reality can be seamlessly augmented with digital artworks, distinct virtual realities can be networked, shared and adapted by audiences, the artist becomes world-maker, the audience is no longer passive; in this brave new world, art does not reflect life - art forms the myriad worlds in which life takes place.

This workshop will blend a variety of approaches to 3D creation - Sutu will focus on painting in Tilt Brush, publishing paintings to Poly, working with Tilt Brush paintings in Unity, animating a camera through your painting, and photogrammetry scanning of the epic landscape. Jama will take the group through the VR drawing and sculpting workflow he uses to create designs for films such as Star Wars: Mandalorian, Guardians of the Galaxy and Blade Runner: Revelations

Sutu Eats Flies uses art and technology in new ways to tell stories. He has been commissioned by the likes of Marvel, Google and Disney to create VR art for projects such as Doctor Strange and Ready Player One.  He has also created four VR documentaries; Inside Manus for SBS, Mind at War for Ryot Films and The Battle of Hamel for the Australian War Memorial and Future Dreaming for NITV. He is also known for his interactive comics including the Eisner-nominated These Memories Won't Last. The Webby award-winning Nawlz, The Gold Ledger-winning Neomad, and Modern Polaxis. He holds a Honorary Doctorate of Digital Media from Central Queensland University, is a 2017 Sundance Fellow and is the co-founder of EyeJack an Augmented Reality company.

Jama Jurabaev is a professional concept artist, illustrator and a matte painter from Tajikistan, currently working in the movie and game industry in London, UK. He originally studied Aerospace Engineering but later decided to move into concept art. He is currently a freelance concept artist for LucasFilm and, previously, he worked for studios including Framestore, MPC, Marvel Studios, Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures, with credits including Ready Player One, Jurassic World 2, Star Wars, and many more. Other clients include Lexus, Infiniti, Samsung, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and Nike.

In 2012 he began working as a matte painter in the commercial department at MPC (London), with clients including Audi, Samsung, Lexus, Mercedes and Nike. At MPC, Jama got his first taste of Hollywood working on movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men: Days of Future Past. From MPC he moved to Framestore, where he got even more involved in film: he was lead concept artist for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Beauty and the Beast, Ready Player One and Pan. Other film credits include Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Blade Runner: Revelations and Geostorm.

Jama is currently collaborating with Industrial Light and Magic and Lucas Film, notably on Star Wars: Mandalorian, and developing his own projects as a director.

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.
