ArtWorks’ second visiting artist in residence, Amelia Key. During the month of July, Key will lead eight teen and young adult Artists as they explore a range of sculptural solutions that transform and elevate the mundane objects that pervade our daily life, creating a dialogue about plastic waste, the environment, and the relationship between materials and concept. They will gain experience showcasing their finished pieces in an exhibition at the ArtWorks V² Gallery and have the opportunity to speak publicly about their work.
This exhibition will be on view July 28 – September 15
Parts or Pieces
ArtWorks will work with Cincinnati-based Performance Artist and Curator Noel Maghathe. Teen and young adult Artists will meet for three hours twice a week to develop their practice on performance art. Teen and young adult Artists will learn the basic history of Performance Art through a diverse range of contemporary performers. Teen and young adult Artists will learn to speak conceptually about their work and build an understanding of why they are creating it, a vision of the purpose, and the reasoning behind their work. They will also gain experience learning how to display performance work and get an understanding of curating work in a space.
This exhibition will be on view September 29 – November 17
ArtWorks fifth and final artist in residency for 2023 is led by Sarah Rodriguez. During the program, the group meets twice a week to explore new techniques, create artwork based on the theme of future heirlooms, discuss the artwork, write artist statements, and engage with arts professionals. The group will focus on work that reflects artists as storytellers, considering concepts such as, what is an heirloom, and how our identity and interpersonal relationships manifest in the significance of an object. Using a variety of techniques, artists will create pieces that present their unique perspectives as they work through the questions above.
They will gain experience showcasing their finished pieces in an exhibition at the ArtWorks V² Gallery in the winter and have the opportunity to speak publicly about their work.
This exhibition will be on view December 1, 2023 – January 12, 2024
