January 23 Mail Art

During the annual Angst Gallery Celebration of the Male Form exhibit we will be talking about mail-art. In the late 1950's and 60's  a small funk art movement began where artist created artwork specifically to be sent through the mail. In this lecture, hands-on art making experience, and wine tasting event we will look at artist who participated in the fun irreverent New York Correspondance (sic) School. Get ready to go postal. Each participant will receive a work of art in the mail following the event. 

 

February 27 Love, Lies, and Artwork

Fake identities, faux artifacts, and pretend scientists. We will be looking at artists who told whopping big lies and engaged in fakery to make us question what is real. We will discuss what is creative and imaginative versus what is just deceptive, and we will create some unbelievable objects of our own. 

 

March 20 Street Art

Street Art can be a beautiful and thought provoking form of public art. Tagging, stenciling, and past-ups constantly transform the urban landscape. While making our own stencils we will look at artist such as Banksy, Swoon, and Margaret Killgallen who moved from vandalism to being  legitimate and highly sought after artists. 

 

April 24 April Fools/Artist Fools

We will get seriously silly while looking at some super witty artist such as British artist David Shrigley who made a career out of very bad drawings. We will enjoy inappropriate nonsense while pretending we are having a serious discussion about high art. We will make some goofy art as well.
