Memento: A Workshop with Ed Pien
Part storytelling and part art-making, this hands-on workshop explores our relationship to objects, their affect, and the memory and narrative embedded in them. Participants will consider the power of objects in their lives and memories, and will craft lost objects from materials that Ed Pien often uses in his installations.
Limited space available! Registration is required. Workshop is appropriate for ages 12 and up.
This workshop is related programming to Ed Pien’s exhibition Shadowed Land, on view at the AGM until January 1, 2017.
