Note: The language of instruction for this workshop is French. Another Articulation workshop offered in English is coming up in November.
In art today, an important new narrative form is required to convey the experiences that constitute what are known as process based or contextual artworks, mainly because they “overflow” their physical characteristics. By reading short texts as examples of different critical approaches, this workshop will explore various aspects of writing practice. The chosen texts will discuss process based and protean artworks which necessarily call for more complex exercises in description. Participants will also be invited to use language as a form of posture, while searching to embody the space between self and artwork, between self and reader.
Articulation is a critical art writing workshop series intended to offer participants the support, skills, and editorial assistance they need to establish or expand their critical art writing practice. Established and emerging art writers are encouraged to apply. One piece of writing from each Articulation workshop, as identified through a juried selection process, will be published into a special featured section on apt613.ca
