Join Miami-based artist Lauren Shapiro in a clay-pressing workshop to build her exhibition Future Pacific at the Bakehouse Art Complex
About this Event
This fall, Bakehouse Art Complex presents Future Pacific, an immersive, site-specific installation by Miami-based artist Lauren Shapiro.
Future Pacific will feature large-scale, unfired clay structures that resemble architectural ruins covered with textures sourced from coral reefs.
To build the exhibition, Shapiro will engage the local community through a series of hands-on, physically-distanced workshops at the Bakehouse. Participants are not required to have previous experience in ceramics and may contribute to the installation by pressing clay into the silicone molds and then applying the forms to foundational structures inside of the gallery.
Workshops will take place throughout October, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:00 - 6:00pm and on Saturdays, 10:00am - 5:00pm.
Please enter via the pedestrian gate adjacent to the yellow building on 32nd Street. Street parking available.
Masks and physical-distancing are required. 10 tickets available per workshop session. Plastic face shields will be provided.*
