Creative Workshop: Handmade Book

  • Sat 14 October 2023
  • 1 – 4 pm

Participate in a series of creative workshops led by LA-based artists as part of ‘Now or Never’ – an Education Lab created on the occasion of Mexican-German artist Stefan Brüggemann’s first solo exhibition in LA and in response to the artist’s desire to make a space to explore ideas.

This month’s creative workshop, open to teens and adults, is led by artist Karina Esperanza Yanez. Participants will explore the theme of emotional duality by creating one handmade book that showcases stark visual contrasts or opposites. Taking inspiration from Stefan Brüggemann’s text-based works, participants will use basic bookbinding techniques and mixed-media art to express conflicting emotions or ideas within their book.

This workshop is free and open to participants 13 years and older. Participants under 16 must be accompanied by adults. Space is limited; reservations are required. Click here to register.

About ‘Stefan Brüggemann. White Noise’
Titled ‘White Noise,’ Mexican-German artist Stefan Brüggemann’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles will feature work created over the past two years. Paintings, installation and neon works on view will address the ways in which information and misinformation saturate our consciousness and shape our understanding of and approach to the world now. Brüggemann’s art layers texts in a distinctive type of controlled chaos, opening a space between legibility and abstraction that yields a sense of doubt and questioning in the process of parsing truth.
