Join an evening’s writing workshop with Fieldnotes as they celebrate the artist’s studio as a site of failure and frustration, reflecting on the role these play in creative process. Bringing together experiences of failure, desperation and frustrated intentions, the workshop will consider how writing might be deployed as a medium or tool to en/counter creative blocks. Through a series of exercises and prompts that invite the incidence of error, divergence and misunderstanding, participants will respond to the exhibition A Century of the Artist’s Studio and the different personalities and studio spaces it presents.
The session will be led by Bella Marrin (Fieldnotes Editor, artist and writer) and Elaine Tam (Fieldnotes Senior Editor, curator and writer).
Participants will be encouraged to experiment and collaborate by selecting between short and informal writing exercises with a focus on process rather than outcomes. All levels of experience are welcome: writers or artists, blocked or otherwise, aspiring or established, and anyone who feels they would like to write but is unsure of how to start.
Refreshments & materials provided.
This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Work/Process.
