Workshop: HOMA with Spencer Garland / BRENDA ARTS
In this workshop, students will learn about museums and power structures within the art world through a survey of contemporary Black artists and exhibitions. We’ll create modern art collections in our homes by way of building original work and using digital video to curate and share our HOMA collections. Using online platforms to explore and exchange ideas, images, and information we’ll define our own aesthetics and create personal canons outside the constraints of formal institutions.
Spencer Garland’s style has been described as Afrofutrominimalist. He aims to create new Black narratives, pulling aesthetics from the cultural zeitgeist combining everything from Michel Gondry-esque tactile props, to African American iconography and Japanese street fashion. Spencer Garland is the founder of BRENDA ARTS, a film program geared for BIPOC youth that involves film history, media literacy and production.
