Family Studio Workshop: Dream Documents

  • Sun 30 June 2019
  • 12 – 3 pm

Inspired by the exhibition, ‘Guillermo Kuitca’ on view in the South gallery, the June Family Studio Workshop will investigate the surreal spaces we envision in our dreams. Participants will document a dream or imagine a scene where there are no people, only abandoned objects. To produce a dream-like effect, participants will use oil pastels, washi tape, and cotton swabs to create images on paper of ethereal spaces that are isolated, and where objects may stand alone. The workshop will be led by Chloe Pang. This drop-in activity is free, however, reservations are recommended. Click here to register. About ‘Guillermo Kuitca’ On view in the South gallery, ‘Guillermo Kuitca’ is the first Los Angeles exhibition with acclaimed Argentine artist Guillermo Kuitca. Kuitca’s paintings collapse, mirror, and fracture the architectural structures and spaces they depict, placing the viewer in spatial and temporal limbo. Beds often serve as a sort of stage, suggesting notions of family and the domestic sphere, and empty chairs provide a distinct feeling of alienation and disintegration. Conspicuously absent in many of these paintings is the human figure, yet inconspicuous are the various trap doors, architectural discontinuities, and murky clusters of indiscernible objects, that suggest human presence and reveal themselves upon prolonged looking.
