For our second installment of Making Art with Artists, artist and curator of The Roaring Fork Youth Art Expo Adam Stamp will provide a brief art history lesson about still life drawing and guide you through creating your own masterpiece.
Our next “How To…” session is a conversation with journalist Charlotte Burns and American museum director Philip Tinari. He will discuss the current cultural landscape in China, the UCCA’s upcoming Warhol show, and the artists he is looking at right now.
Philip Tinari is director and chief executive of UCCA Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing. Since joining in 2011, he has led its transformation from a founder-driven private museum into China’s leading independent contemporary art institution, presenting a wide range of exhibitions and programs to an annual audience of over one million visitors. In 2018, UCCA opened a second location, UCCA Dune, in an award-winning building buried under the sand on the beach in Beidaihe. UCCA Edge, in Shanghai’s Jing’an district, will open in May 2021. A widely published writer, Tinari was founding editor of the magazine LEAP and is a contributing editor of Artforum. He was co-curator of the 2017 exhibition Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World at the Guggenheim and SFMOMA, and curator of the 2016 exhibition Bentu: Chinese Artists in a Time of Turbulence and Transformation at Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris. He is a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum and a fellow of the Public Intellectuals Program of the National Committee on US-China Relations. Fluent in Mandarin, Tinari was a Fulbright scholar at Tsinghua, and holds degrees from Duke and Harvard
Today, we will play with a couple of different weaving techniques using multiple kinds of yarn to create a variety of textures.
The Teen Curators program allows participants to gain insight into different styles of curatorial practice. In this brand-new iteration of what has become a signature AAM highlight for teens, each curator will design their own creative project with support from museum staff.
Teen Council meetings happen every other Tuesday from August to May. Through this program led by AAM Educator, Elisabeth Strunk, local teenagers create and implement events for their peers. The Council follows the motto, “For teens, by teens,” to make the Aspen Art Museum a fun place for youth in the Roaring Fork Valley.
Are you between the ages of K-12? Or do you simply want to make mixed media art?
Join us this Wednesday at 2:30pm, as AAM educator, Vanessa Porras, guides you through one of the themes for the Roaring Fork Youth Art Expo. Gather all your fun miscellaneous supplies, and we hope to see you there!
Join Calgary-based artist, poet, musician Malcolm Mooney for a conversation with Winterfest curator Saim Demircan. Mooney will discuss the origins of his Damndemic Monsters watercolor series featured in Winterfest and how these artworks refer back to his time as the original singer of CAN, the prolific German experimental rock band that formed in Cologne in 1968.
Teen Artists will meet with and learn from AAM staff, guest artists, and our creative community partners at Anderson Ranch. They will explore and build their art-making skills and present their work to the public in the spring.
