Art Course with artist Beth O’Halloran addressing expanded ideas by using expanded media – paintings that stretch beyond the canvas edge, 3D works using everyday/found materials, drawings constructed with non-traditional tools…and delving into ideas sparked by the Bones in the Attic exhibition. The workshops will centre on innovations in process to explore the personal and political issues addressed in the exhibition. Through paint, 3D object making and photographic source material, participants are invited to stretch the definition of painting vs sculpture and in turn question other cultural givens.
