Collaboration with the ICA


The Boston ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) invited me to teach a workshop to its current members explaining the style and technique of the famous street artist Swoon. The description of the workshop can be found on the ICA website and is shown below.

Swoon-Inspired Workshop As Described on the ICA site:

Created using everyday materials such as paper, x-acto knives, and wheat paste, Swoon’s art is often found in unexpected places. Artist Ari Hauben presents an introduction to using common instruments to create art, as well as how Swoon used them to create Anthropocene Extinction. Participants will create their own signature piece, all while drinking their morning coffee.
