Link to interview with Zebra:
AN ARTFUL NIGHT
for GMP Richardson
Zebra curated and hosted an artful event for the company. The evening was an experience for the employees, who enjoyed a taste of the art world, and had the opportunity to discover their own creativity and the artist within themselves.
The evening comprised of two parts: a talk and an interactive part.
Vladimir Spicanovic, Dean of the Faculty of Art at OCAD University gave a brilliant talk titled “Navigating Contemporary Art”. Topics discussed were What is contemporary art? values, function(s), diversity, interdisciplinarity; Navigation as a metaphor: learning, appropriation, appreciation and collecting art.
Artist Nava Waxman led the second part of the evening; an interactive activity for the company’s employees.
In the artistic session, participants had the opportunity to discover and explore one of the most ancient media in art – Encaustic.
Participants drew, etched and carved their own encaustic piece of art.
The activity sparked creative ideas, was inspirational and above all – fun.
