Join curator Muna Cann and artist Gustavo Artigas for an interactive video-making workshop inspired by Chantal Akerman and Basma Alsharif’s exhibitions at MOCA.
Playful and experimental in nature, the workshop will explore the differences and similarities between video art and cinema. Participants in the workshop will have the chance to create collaborative short videos using footage from their smartphones as a means to inquire into traditional narrative film and how it might be disrupted.
The workshop will consist of the following:
- Introduction – As a group, participants will visit Akerman and Alsharif’s exhibitions.
- Conversation – Cann and Artigas will lead a casual discussion about the methodologies of traditional cinema and video utilized in each exhibition.
- Collaboration & Presentation – Based on the observations made in the introductory discussions, participants will collectively create a series of videos based on footage culled from their own personal smartphones. The created videos will be presented at the end of the workshop.
Event is free with museum admission and is all-ages. Please register in advance to save your spot.
Please bring your smartphone to participate.
This workshop is presented by ART LINKS INC.
