Power Kids: Rebuilding What's Broken

Sunday, August 27, 2017
3:00pm– 5:00pm

Ydessa Hendeles is not just an artist, but a collector and curator as well! She often collects objects and then organizes these objects to present a new narrative or idea. In this workshop, we will recontextualize a collection of repurposed children’s toys, using them as the base materials for an artwork. Participants will challenge themselves by creating assemblage sculptures with different elements in only one chosen colour. Their sculpture will tell a story or create a larger form that has never existed before.

Power Talks: Charles Gaines

Wednesday, August 30, 2017
4:00pm– 5:00pm

This Power Talk will cover a survey of the work of Charles Gaines, covering his early work in systems and numerals to his most recent work with language and representation. Hear a discussion on ways in which Gaines’ works rethink notions of subjectivity, and how these notions are manifested in works of art. Gaines will also speak about the fine difference between chance and arbitrary judgments—on the one hand being expressive and intuitional, and on the other both sharing the characteristic of being indeterminate—and how works of art can uniquely interrogate this difference.
