Prescribing Art! From Rule-Based Art to Social PracticeAlberta College of Art + Design (Illingworth Kerr Gallery on 3rd Floor) Calgary, Alberta
Visual Arts, Multi/Interdisciplinary — Hands-On Activity, Talks and Discussion
The Illingworth Kerr Gallery (IKG) is celebrating 60 years with an exhibition entitled Unpacking IKG: 60 Years a Gallery and this is a workshop in conjunction.
Solving the riddle of “what is art?” has no easy answer…Although one “logical” approach is to create art shaped by a pre-determined framework. Prescriptive examples explored in this workshop include rule-based art (an artist proposes criteria to be followed); art multiples (a proposition for iterations of the same art object); and social prescriptions (distinct from art therapy, a doctor prescribes activities e.g. art making, as a remedy). Attending this session will encompass a range of art-making activities including creating an art multiple, guerrilla gardening, and devising your own set of rules for making art.
