The Power Plant

Connecting to Stuart Hall’s theories about media as presented in the exhibition The Unfinished Conversation: Encoding/Decoding and using found images drawn from media sources such as newspapers and magazines, participants will collage, draw and write in this workshop to create their own fake headline collage. Starting with a photo fragment as a reference point, participants will use their imaginations to extend the image past the frame and create a larger, more complete drawing of a past event and an alternative narrative around it. The workshop will conclude with a short show and share, after which participants can take their creations home.

Tours and workshops are led by artist-educator Anna Bouzina, assisted by Adrienne Costantino.

Please note: For children ages 8 – 12 and their younger siblings and adult companions. Caregivers are expected to join their children in all activities.
