Join Rebuild Foundation for a hands-on workshop series exploring the connection between architecture and social change. This month's sessions will be lead by visiting artist Lyndon Barrois Jr.
How do artists take everyday materials and give them new meaning? This session of Art+Architecture explores four core concepts: agency, economy, transformation, and verticality. The first three of these terms will be discussed as guiding principles in the process of creation; the last term presents the only rule: participants must build upwards.
Lyndon Barrois, Jr. (lbarroisjr.com) received his MFA from the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Art as a Chancellor’s graduate fellow, and his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art. His work explores questions of aesthetic value, experiential presence and the ways in which objects and images organize conduct; and has been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, and New Zealand. Barrois is currently an adjunct faculty member in drawing and design at Washington University in St. Louis, and Webster University, respectively.
