“Under each picture there is always another picture,” wrote historian and art critic Douglas Crimp. Workshop participants will reflect on the current Art School High exhibit, generating original material through a series of generative writing prompts based on mash-up methodologies. At play with memories of lived high school experiences — as well as notions of originality, identity, influence and imitation — we will write in the space of the gallery in direct response to the images on display. Open to both emerging and established writers in the community!
