NADA Presents in Collaboration with Kickstarter
Sunday, March 5
11am RISO SESSION WITH EFA ROBERT BLACKBURN PRINTMAKING WORKSHOP
A risographic printer is somewhere between a silkscreen process and an early Xerox. Artists have used its unique palette and off registration to combine stencils, drawing, and photographic layers to mass produce posters, books, comics, and zines. Drop by to learn more about the process and make your own prints with artist/instructor Paul John. Participants are encouraged to bring along drawings or photographs that they wish to print with the risograph. Colors available include blue, red, and black.
1pm INVESTING IN FUTURES WITH MORE&MORE UNLIMITED (MARINA ZURKOW AND SARAH ROTHBERG)
This world-building workshop will ask you to imagine radically different possibilities for what the future could look like. Participants will choose randomly from a deck of cards containing parameters that could describe a society, such as government, food availability, and working conditions. Then, they’ll work together to conceptualize, diagram, and craft artifacts from worlds that could meet these constraints – alternate realities that will perhaps spark solutions for our current one.
All are welcome to participate in the workshop, but for the best experience, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1st.
2:30pm REINVENTING MUSEUMS
A conversation with Alex Kalman of Mmuseumm, Ayodamola Okunseinde and Salome Asega of the Iyapo Repository, and Nico Wheadon of The Studio Museum in Harlem, moderated by Willa Köerner, Director of Curation for Kickstarter.
The museum community is in the midst of a vast and destabilizing transformation. As many institutions expand — both literally and metaphorically — others are being downsized or facing funding cuts. At the same time, the role of the traditional museum is being interrogated, and new, highly inventive museum models are springing up. As we look to the future, we ask: what role do museum collections and artifacts play in shaping our collective future? How will museums be tested over the next ten years? If traditional museum models falter, should they be saved? And, importantly, how can museums reinvent themselves to mean more to more people?
3:30pm CONTEMPORARY DRAG: BABY TEA
Tyler Ashley aka The Dauphine of Bushwick and Wise Men present Baby Tea including a conversation on Post Drag with Theda Hammel and performances by Matt Savitsky, Merrie Cherry, and Patti Spliff. Baby Tea is a monthly party fusing activism with the tradition of the gay tea dance.
