Inspired by the Crochet Coral Reef: Toxic Seas and Josh Blackwell: Neveruses Report Progress exhibitions, both currently on view at the Museum, this workshop focuses on up-cycling plastic bags into something new and useful.
Artist-in-residence WonJung Choi works intricately in metal; in this iteration of MADmakes, she will lead visitors through an exercise using intricately cut paper that mirrors her own process to produce miniature objects that reflect one’s ever-changing identity.
Peter Voulkos Working offers a window into three distinct chapters of his unprecedented career. “Voulkos and Company” is a portrait of the artist at work on the final stages of a monumental cast bronze sculpture commissioned for the San Francisco Hall of Justice.
In her highly theoretical and poetic film works, Cha uses performance, speech, and text to explore interactions of language, meaning, and memory.
Discover the art and design made at MAD with the residents of the Artist Studios Program. Join outgoing artists as they discuss their work in a Pecha Kucha style presentation in the Theater at MAD.
At this full-day professional development workshop, teachers are invited to look through the curatorial lenses of two artists—Françoise Grossen, a fiber artist who rejected the loom in the 1960s to create a novel kind of weaving through knotting rope, and Lauren Kalman, a performance artist and metalsmith whose practice investigates beauty, adornment, body image, value, and consumer culture.
