Kolbowski’s research-based visual and textual practice addresses questions of temporality, historicization, political resistance, and the unconscious. In this exhibition, video, collage and installation work by the artist examine contemporary issues around political narrativization and power structures through historical figures and film history.
For this member’s workshop, Heather Rigg, Gallery 44’s Curator of Exhibitions + Public Programs, will discuss her approach to curating within various contexts. This will be followed by a discussion of the assigned reading, Exactly Nothing by Luther Konadu. The second half of the workshop will focus on the submission process. Participants can ask questions about submitting their work to various open calls, and for advice on putting together an exhibition proposal.
In conjunction with the exhibition Silvia Kolbowski: A Few Howls Again, the workshop Making Arguments in Space will explore strategies of critical curating with a focus on spatial dialogues. This workshop will assist participants in defining their own curatorial practice that is actively engaged in the politics of display.
Robyn Zolnai, the sales manager and communications officer at the Stephen Bulger Gallery, offers her first-hand expertise in the photography art market to those pursuing a practice as a professional photographer.
This workshop, led by curator and writer Geneviève Wallen, aims to cultivate and explore the effects provided by small wonders and simple awes. Participants will receive a list of seven playful photographic prompts to complete before the workshop.
Led by artist member Huw Morgan, this workshop will begin with a short artist talk, followed by a step-by-step demonstration of creating effects of blur and movement using Photoshop CC similar to the techniques used in Huw's recent exhibition at Gallery 44, City in Motion. Blur effects are useful in street photography as well as landscape photography to add interest to waterfalls, lakes and rivers and create movement in images
