Artist Lordy Rodriguez leads a workshop for families inspired by Carlos Villa’s show, Manongs, which marked the passage of time.
In this interactive family workshop with Lordy Rodriguez, we will take inspiration from artwork created by Carlos Villa late in his career. In a 2011 show titled Manongs, Villa displayed a series of salvaged doors and wood panels he’d scratched with an awl, as a way of marking time and accounting for the years of his life.
During 2020, artist Lordy Rodriguez created a series of small artworks that accounted for the passing of time and the passing of lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For this workshop, held in conjunction with Carlos Villa: Worlds in Collision, Rodriguez will guide participants to create their own calendars or time-markers, to commemorate what has passed, as well as to look toward the future.
Space is limited. Materials will be provided.
