Hosted by Light Gallery + Jeffrey Augustine Songco

Thursday, April 26th from 6 to 8pm

As defined by Wikipedia, ‘conceptual art’ is “art in which the concept(s) or idea(s) involved in the work take precedence over traditional aesthetic, technical, and material concerns”. This workshop will cover a brief history of the Conceptual Art movement and introduce a variety of techniques and strategies used in a conceptual art practice. Artists will learn how to develop deeper meaning in their artwork and/or expand production beyond their usual medium of choice. Artists are encouraged to bring examples of past artwork to activate discussion and short critiques.
