DTP Online - Monika Weiss - Studio Visit
Sun, 30 May 2021, 20:00 – 21:30 BST, London Time
In this upcoming meeting, Polish-American artist Monika Weiss will be talking about her past work, her multidisciplinary practice (video, film, performance, sound, drawing and sculpture) and about her latest project the Nirbhaya memorial and related drawing and sound composition series, collectively titled Dafne and Metamorphosis.
DTP Online is a program by Draw to Perform which includes 1.5 hours studio visit to artists that relate to drawing, performative drawing, and live art. These online events are giving the audience an opportunity to get a closer look at the work of key artists in the genre. They also give the audience a chance to observe the artist's creative process and their choice of materials and techniques as the work progresses.
At the beginning of each meeting, the visiting artist gives a live 10-minute performance or presentation in their own private workplace. The focus lies not only on performance art, but also on those who use drawing as their main medium of work.
The program was created with the setbacks of the continued pandemic and lockdown in mind, and it gives us a chance to connect more in a time of separation and collectively brainstorm ideas on drawing, art and performing, as the audience are invited to ask the artists direct questions.
