Workshop “Etsu Egami: Did you get it?”

Date(s) : Sunday, October 16, 2022

Time : 13:00 - 15:00

In this workshop, the artist Etsu Egami will lead participants in a “misunderstanding game” during which they will be asked to describe or give some impression of something to the next person who then passes along their impression to the next person until it comes to the last person to draw a picture based on the information passed to him or her. In this process of conveying information, there will be much fun shared among the participants regarding the final results produced, as well as the miscommunications that arise. Through interaction with the artist and her work, they will also experience new approaches towards artistic expression.
