Watkins College of Art, Design & Film presents Blocks: Constructed Exclusions, an exhibition of collaborative work from Mika Agari, Upreyl Mitchell, Sharon Stewart and Weng Tze Yang, at its downtown gallery WAG during the March 1 edition of the First Saturday Art Crawl.
The show features works that investigate recollection and association through a playful process of passing material anonymously from one artist to the next. These themes were explored through rules that limited time and information while emphasizing the experience of the process over the outcome. Agari is a Fine Art major; Mitchell, Stewart and Yang are Photography majors.
WAG – an acronym for Watkins Arcade Gallery – is located in suite 77 upstairs in the historic Arcade and is open the first Saturday evening of the month during each Art Crawl (from 6-9 p.m.), and by appointment via [email protected].
