Trampoline Hall: Artist Made Tickets

Vanessa Rieger from the White House Studio Project was asked to create tickets for tonight’s Trampoline Hall at the Garrison. She will also act as a liaison to help curate different artists from the White House to make unique “artist made” tickets every month for the lecture series. We are very excited about the White House Studios becoming involved with Trampoline Hall! Stay tuned for more info on upcoming Trampoline Halls (happens once a month).

GUESS WHAT?! with The Three Tongues

The Three Tongues: A Curated Series of Pedagogical Exchanges
by Stacey Sproule & Elizabeth Underhill.

This workshop/lecture will expand on the idea of disseminating knowledge orally. Stacey and Elizabeth will choose three skills to be taught at the inaugural Three Tongues Meeting: both choosing from their beliefs about what are important skills to proliferate.

Stacey and Elizabeth will present three invited guests, each teaching one of the “Three Tongues” to a group of interested participants. The attendees will be sectioned off into three groups and each group will be taught a different skill simultaneously. At the end of the first 20 minute cycle the teachers join their groups and then the groups are divided and paired off giving the students the opportunity to teach each other the skill they just gleaned. When the second 20 minutes has passed the pairs are then switched once more which completes the cycle and by the end of the last 20 minutes all the participants have had the chance to collect the three new skills and teach at least two of them. As a token to take away from The Three Tongues, and to help with the learning process, each participant will be given a handmade tag – so we can keep track of the groups and to also remember their experiences.

We will be learning three new skills that explore different forms of decision making:

Pendulum Dowsing
Contra Dancing
Drawing Intuitively

Guess What?! with Matt Mincoff

Seeing Beyond Looking Through
This week, Thursday April the 28th, Matt Mincoff will be at the White House
to talk about his artistic practice in sculpture and installation and the current concepts that inspire his works.

My Mind (2010)
250x250x250 mm
plastic, ink-jet transfers of ct scan, zip-ties, plaster

Matt Mincoff is an artist/sculptor from Hamilton Ontario and has studied at OCAD (BFA 2007) and RMIT Melbourne (MFA 2010). His practice is an exploration of what is unknown and how can we communicate what should be unexplainable. With this focus on the unknown he has worked with the concepts of the mind, ghosts, identity, invisibility, spirit, relationships and n-dimensional geometry through various approaches to objects, installation, images, sounds and video.

The workshop will discuss various topics that Mincoff has been recently working on through his art practice with slide presentations of his work and relevant media to support the concepts under the title “seeing beyond looking through”.
