Patricia Miranda brings The Crit Lab to CCP. Akin to a mini graduate-level seminar, the group will engage materials in their own language, situate artworks in a social context, ask ethical and aesthetic questions, while protecting the creative process.
The Crit Lab is a supportive forum for exploration and discussion of work at every level from idea to completion. The ongoing and intensive safe space of the meetings encourages work to thrive and grow in critical depth and perception. The connections and community transcend the Lab.
This two-day workshop will introduce to Crit Lab methodology. After an introductory lecture, participants engage in long form critique with each person’s work.
Participants should bring a group of works to discuss.
