Art and Practice is a series of programs that bring together emerging and experienced artists to explore the challenges and possibilities of sustaining a creative life.
Join artist Rosângela Rennó for a workshop on photography, archives, and reconstructing new narratives through visual culture. “History is a living organism,” Rennó has said, pointing to the everyday urgency of protecting public and private stories. For this session, participants will be invited to bring a photograph from their personal archives and discuss narratives they can release through the image.
This 120-minute, in-person program is for anyone who identifies as an artist or art worker. Participants are welcome to choose how much to participate. It will be followed by a casual reception. This program is free, but an application form is required. To keep the conversation intimate, registration is limited and applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. For more information, please contact [email protected].
The program will take place in English. This event is free, with registration here.
Rosângela Rennó (Brazilian, born 1962) is not a photographer, but photography is both her material and her subject. For over 30 years she has drawn from forgotten archives and anonymous photos to create artworks that bring marginal histories into focus. Rennó’s work invites us to linger on the worn surfaces and frayed edges of technological modernity and poses important questions: Who has the right to visibility? Who has the right to opacity? How are historical narratives constructed through visual culture? And what forgotten stories might be salvaged?
