Omar Estrada Workshop

Monday, November 26, 2018 - 11:30
Alan Wildeman Centre for Creative Arts, NMPL Studio, 360 Freedom Way (across from Armouries)
 

The workshop is an introduction to Omar Estrada's methods and strategies using examples and hands-on exercises:

"We will look at the production of meaning, sound vs image and the importance of silence, referencing and deconstructing in order to make a point in visual/art strategies". (OE)

Workshop is open to SoCA Students only.

Omar Estrada is a Cuban visual artist who works with interdisciplinary installation, sound, video, interactivity, and narrative text. His artwork explores the tensions between Art, Science & Technology in the context of social structures, questioning the validity of political, cultural and knowledge approaches as absolute perceptions.

Since 1983, Estrada has had solo shows in Cuba, the Caribbean, South America and North America and has participated in group exhibitions in Cuba, France, Spain, Korea, Canada and the USA including the Havana Biennial and the Caribbean Biennial in Dominican Republic. Estrada received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of the Arts (ISA) in Havana, Cuba. He has taught Art at the bachelor and master degree level for more than 20 years.
He lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
