Join us for a build your own stories with Damien Davis! Under the guidance of the artist, participants will learn how to layer and assemble images and materials to create narrative compositions of their own. Davis’ signature pre-cut shapes in wood and acrylic will provide inspiration and reflection as participants learn how to harness color and imagery in service of personal or subversive storytelling.
This workshop is open to ages 5 and up and welcomes all skill levels.
Damien Davis (b. 1984) is a Brooklyn-based artist. His practice explores historical representations of blackness by unpacking the visual language of various cultures and questioning how these societies code/decode representations of race through craft, design, and digital modes of production. Davis’ work has been presented at museums and galleries across the US and in Italy, and he is the recipient of numerous grants and residencies. He holds a BFA in Studio Art and an MA in Visual Arts Administration from New York University.
The Center for Art in Wood is a non-profit arts organization located in Philadelphia that nurtures and promotes the innovation of art in wood through collaborative residencies, exhibitions, education, and documentation. The Center also maintains an inspirational collection and a research library to enhance the understanding and appreciation of the art.
All materials are included in the cost of the workshop.
