Art of Resistance: Papermaking Workshop with Combat Paper

  • Brown University List Art Building Providence, RI 02912 (map)

The Brown Arts Initiative is pleased to present three workshops exploring modes of art making in honor of Veterans Day. During the first workshop on Nov 3, participants will work with Combat Paper to create pulp and paper from donated military uniforms. On Nov 5, Rhode Island Poet Laureate Tina Cane will lead a writing workshop. On Nov 8, Brown Prof. Erica Mena will guide participants in learning to use a printing press to print phrases generated during the writing workshop onto paper created during the paper making workshop. All events are free and open to the public, though participation in one of the first two workshops is necessary to attend the third. Space is limited and advanced registration is required.

This second installment in “On Protest, Art & Activism,” a series of exhibitions, installations and public programs exploring art and activism, features works by Hermine Freed, Guerrilla Girls, Suzanne Lacy, Howardena Pindell and Martha Rosler. Part 2 of the exhibition will be open from Nov. 2 – Dec. 19, 2018, in the Cohen Gallery in the Granoff Center for the Creative Arts. A reception in honor of the exhibition will take place on Nov. 2 at 5:30 pm at the Cohen Gallery, Granoff Center.
