Who needs a second opinion?
Artists: are you looking to get out of the studio, out of your head, to share your practice and get feedback from diverse perspectives?
Join a healthy conversation with alumni from Otis College of Art & Design – see others’ work and share constructive feedback. Camera Obscura Open Art Crits are open to visual artists and serious art lovers who are looking for an enriching exchange of ideas.
How it works: Two 45 minute spots are available for sign up ahead of time, plus each session includes one drop-in 15 minute spot. To sign up for the long spots, email Claudia at claudia.b@hotmail.co.uk.
Bring an artwork you made and some specific questions to present to the group.The process: We will be engaging in an analysis of the artwork’s techniques and narratives, subjects and objects, symbols and concepts, and processes and execution while looking, asking, studying, reflecting, and sharing. We will value artwork through observation and acknowledgement of the work’s personal impact as well as the potential it carries in relation to contemporary realities.
This class is presented in conjunction with Trade School (http://tradeschool.coop/losangeles) an alternative, self-organized school that runs on the gift economy. Classes are offered at various sites throughout Los Angeles and teachers work in exchange for receiving simple items on their wish list from participants.
Camera Obscura Art Crit is led by Claudia Borgna, and she requests that participants bring one of these items in exchange for taking the class: a plant, preferably rescued bike-carryable; any garden produce that you might have; home/hand made soap; extra virgin olive oil; oregano essential oil.
