Family Studio Workshop: Bread Prints

  • Sun 14 April 2019
  • 12 – 3 pm

For the April Family Studio Workshop, join us for a printmaking activity inspired by the exhibition, ‘Piero Manzoni. Materials of His Time’ on view in South Gallery. Taking inspiration from Manzoni’s revolutionary approach to painting, participants will make their own artworks using similar readymade materials as seen in the exhibition, such as bread rolls, cotton balls, and foam. The workshop will be led by Matt MacFarland. About ‘Piero Manzoni. Materials of His Time’ ‘Piero Manzoni. Materials of His Time’ is the first exhibition in Los Angeles devoted to the seminal figure of postwar Italian art and progenitor of Conceptualism. Curated by Rosalia Pasqualino di Marineo, director of the Piero Manzoni Foundation in Milan, this exhibition focuses on Manzoni’s revolutionary approach to unconventional materials through the works he dubbed ‘Achromes’ – paintings without color. Over 70 Achromes are on view, comprised of such materials as sewn cloth, cotton balls, fiberglass, synthetic and natural fur, straw, cobalt chloride, polystyrene, stones, and more. This drop-in activity is free, however, reservations are recommended. Click here to register.
