::: Introducing ::: 21 Artists: London Featured Artists Charles Jean-Pierre & James Flowers
Who Really won the Revolutionary War???
We will be doing a workshop on how to transform literary content into visual stories. First we will do a cultural group conversation with the participants. We would like to know their perspectives on politics, society, and esthetics. Next we would conduct an artist critic that deals with ideology as opposed to esthetics. Finally we will do a work shop on how to create collaborative visual stories. We will then create a collage based on the inspirations and conclusions taken from these collaborative meetings. We will engage viewers by asking them to bring in their favorite social, political, and cultural literary works ranging from magazines to novels. We will then ask them to highlight words, cut out paragraphs, etc. to create a collaborative collage that represents transformation. The topic of who really won the revolutionary war deals with perspective and reality. We believe that perspective is really important in transformation. Doing this, we will cover the works of Howard Zin, Chris Hedges, and Malcolm Gladwell.
