VISITING ARTIST WORKSHOP: REBECA MENDEZ / TEXT AND IMAGE COLLAGE
Saturday, November 17, 2012 – Saturday, November 17, 2012 / 9:00 am
After visiting the exhibition Rebeca Mendez: At Any Given Moment students will explore the power of the juxtaposition of words and images in the generation of meaning in various media in a one-day workshop with video installation artist and designer Rebeca Mendez. The topic of Méndez's Word + Image workshop will focus on creating works around the culture of Nature. Through images and words in various media, cultures construct an idea of nature that reinforces or questions the politics of a given era. The undeniable devastating effects our culture continues to have on the natural environment motivates many artists to turn their attention to creating works around the culture of Nature. Working with language and images—from banal snapshot of one’s backyard, to classical photography of the sublime and of human awe in the face of nature, the students will compose meaningful messages about the culture of Nature.
