Sunday June 26, 2016 (2:00-3:00pm) "Public Productions" with Stephanie Syjuco at BAMPFA
Stephanie Syjuco will lead an experimental workshop in which participants will be taken through a series of physical exercises and activities to collectively transform modeling materials into a set of objects that comment upon craft, quality, and capitalism. “Public Productions” will utilize non-specialized skill sets and labor to produce vernacular versions of iconic objects, exploding the notion of specialized or standardized labor to open up a space of play, invention, and learning-as-you-go.
Jacqueline Kiyomi Gordon leads a series of exercises informed by Feldenkrais and listening meditations to explore new ways of perceiving visual works in relation to art institutional architecture.
Sunday Aug 21, 2016 (1:00-2:30pm) "Group Experience" with Olive McKeon at BAMPFA
How do groups move, think, talk, and organize together? Join Olive McKeon for an experiential group encounter that explores social forces and dynamics as they occur in real time.
This is an experiential workshop in group relations: a participatory process that provides an opportunity to study a group's own behavior as it happens in real time. Drawn from the group psychoanalytic practice called the Tavistock method, participants of the workshop will examine group-level forces and dynamics as they occur in the here-and-now.
