Rua Leite de Vasconcelos 43a, Lisboa 1170-198
Coined by cubist artists Braque and Picasso, the term “collage” comes from the French word coller, or “to glue.” The movement emerged under these artists, who began working with various mediums to create avant-garde assemblages around 1910. Playful, experimental, and a challenge to the seriousness of so-called high art.
Exploring Cubism as a style of painting in which the subject matter is presented as geometric forms shown from multiple simultaneous vantage points, you will learn to re-contextualise your old work, taking the works from Picasso as your starting point.
Artist Nina Fraser will show you methods to rework your unwanted drawings and paintings; a process of letting go, facing the unknown and deconstructing something personal to create new work and new ways of thinking.
Please bring with you to this workshop 2 -3 paintings/drawings/collages in approximately A4 size that you are happy to cut up.
