The mask, fabric or medical, continues to be essential for the safety of oneself and others, but it has also evolved into something that can be an expression of the self.
In this virtual workshop we will explore how wearing a mask has impacted our experience of being in the world during a pandemic. Participants will be invited to utilize materials at home to design and create a mask of their own, allowing it to be a piece of art in and of itself.
This workshop is inspired by the current Cambridge Art Galleries exhibition Chloë Lum and Yannick Desranleau: Is It The Sun Or The Asphalt All I See Is Bright Black.
