Black Adornment & The Found Object
February 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join SSCAC Archives and Collections Manager LaMar Gayles Jr. for an afternoon exploring mixed media art, our collections, and adornment objects from his personal collection.
In this participatory program, join SSCAC Collections and Archives Manager LaMar Gayles in exploring examples of adornment and mixed media objects from the archives of the South Side Community Art Center and his personal collection.
This will be a unique opportunity for attendees to explore objects with connections to the history of the Center, how these objects have been made, how these works have aged over time, and thinking through the sociocultural materiality of these objects. Participants will have an opportunity to hold and interact with objects, be introduced to art material behaviors as well as preventive conservation practices that can better preserve these works for the future.
This program will be small and intimate with an attendance cap at 25 participants total, please RSVP in advance.
