YARAT Contemporary Art Space invites local artists to apply for the workshop lead by the Brazilian curator Sheila Zago at Yarat Studios. Duration of the workshop is 5 days.
The workshop invites local artists to debate and explore the relation between female issues and international conflicts of all kinds, from the objectification of the body and questions of gender to the voice of women in diverse wars – all from the perspective of art. The artists and curator will together investigate the theme along with historical and contemporary art works. The process will be documented in photo and video in order to generate extra materials that can be as well transformed into artworks and the participants will be stimulated to produce new pieces inspired by the topics to be in exhibition at YARAT Studios.
This project is part of CONEXUS – a collective nomadic contemporary art project that travels around the world promoting artists and developing educational programs with local partners. Born in Brazil, 9 years ago, now it moves around the globe with the main aim to connect people through art anywhere and anyway possible, trying to bring art, education, joy and visibility to minorities, one community at a time. From these connections, artists are united, contemporary art exhibitions and performances happen, and workshops are developed. The latest projects were held in Brazil, India, Italy and Lebanon, Qatar Syria, United Arab Emirates and now Azerbaijan.
