Power Youth

Power Youth March Break Camp

 Taking inspiration from The Field of Emotion, a solo exhibition by Algerian-French artist Kader Attia (born Siene-Saint-Denis, France), youth will be guided in viewing and discussing the theme of “repair.” Through his sculptural installations and films, Attia contrasts the idea of repair in modern western culture—a desire to return something to its original state—to the idea of repair in African and Japanese cultures, which focus on the beauty of brokenness and highlight an object's imperfections. Throughout the week, youth will learn how to create sculptural objects using a variety of materials (clay, wire, metal and everyday objects) in an exploration of “repair” of personal or societal issues.
