Creative Workshop: Introduction to Relief Printing

  • Sat 18 November 2023
  • 11 am – 4.30 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 adults, is led by artist Jorge Vargas. Participants will be taught basic skills to design, carve and handprint imagery on rubber blocks. Inspired by Stefan Brüggemann’s thematic exploration of abstraction and his use of text, participants will incorporate words, phrases and/or images into prints illustrating internal contradictions. This process will result in prints that are unique and personalized to each participant.

This workshop is free and open to participants 18 years and older. 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.
