The Artist As Artwork (Beirut Edition)

Overview:

In this part-talk part-exercise session, you will take a close look at the impulses that drive autobiographical works of art and the intentions behind them. By looking at the process of different autobiographical artists and relating their work to MEMORY, HEALING, IDENTITY, and POWER, we will uncover the value of this art practice that is often misjudged as pure self-indulgence or narcissism. We will explore key concepts that will be directly put in practice through guided exercises.

Exercises:

These will be short briefs to conceptualize ideas inspired by the information above. The content is personal in nature hence you will be free to share or not share the work you create. You can also use the session to improve on a personal project that you have already initiated.

The Artist As Artwork Workshop

Overview:

Narcissistic and self-indulgent are words often used arbitrarily to describe artists who choose to put themselves and their lives at the centre of their work. Well, there is much more to their work than pure self-indulgence. If you are an artist working with the "self", you probably know what I mean. In this 5-part monthly workshop series we will explore autobiographical art practices, the why and the how. We will take a look at the process of different artists and relate their work to memory, healing, identity, and power. We will also discuss the relationship of these artists to their audience and how their work is perceived.

The sessions are organized as part lectures part exercises that could be either individual or group exercises. There is a homework aspect although it is not mandatory. This course is for all levels and all fields in art. 

The sessions:

March 7: Past, Relived and Rites of Passage

May 2: From Private to Public
