We’re collaborating with our friends at Public Art Fund to bring you Bodily Book Forms, an outdoor workshop in Sunset Park!

We’ll create one-page books and accordion zines inspired by Felipe Baeza’s Unruly Forms, an exhibition of eight paintings currently displayed in hundreds of bus shelters and street furniture across the United States and Mexico. In this series of free workshops visitors, Sunset Park residents, and the Mixteca community will experiment with collage, pop-up structures, and binding techniques to explore the unruly relationship between the body and the book form. Each participant will create a project that can be easily photocopied and multiplied, echoing the format of Baeza’s Public Art Fund commission.

These outdoor workshops will be conducted in English and Spanish. All materials will be provided. No registration is needed; audiences of all ages are encouraged to drop in!

Bodily Book Forms is curated by Gabriela López Dena, Associate Curator of Public Practice. Email [email protected] with questions and requests for accessibility.
