Join us for a hands-on Family Studio exploring themes of our summer exhibition ‘Monika Sosnowka.’
About the Studio:
Working with pipe-cleaners, unfired clay, and building models, families will ‘sample’ source material from everyday architecture to create objects inspired by Sosnowska’s lived experience of Polish modernist architecture. Like Sosnowksa’s sculptures, families will be encouraged to manipulate quotidian architectural elements to make the familiar surreal and the monumental small. Once displayed, these sculptures will mimic Sosnowksa’s studio, in which the artist uses scale models to imagine the uncanny space between functional architecture and abstract sculpture. This workshop will be led by Julia M. Leonard.
About the Exhibition:
‘Monika Sosnowska’ is the first Los Angeles solo exhibition for the noted Polish artist. The exhibition features a new body of work that responds to characteristic elements of existing 1960s Polish architecture in sculptural installations that reflect and riff upon history and personal experience. Wrought from industrial materials and objects, Sosnowska’s works ‘sample’ various architectural details that she idiosyncratically warps in order to immerse viewers in environments that are both uncannily familiar and disconcertingly surreal.
