Storywork: Impression Performance and Conversation with the Artist
Storywork: Impression is an immersive, experimental, and collaborative exploration of Storywork: The Prints of Marie Watt from the Collections of Jordan Schnitzer and his Family Foundation in partnership with University Galleries, University of San Diego that combines dance, printmaking, writing, drawing, and live projection. Participants are invited to experience the images, themes, materials, and stories of the exhibition and share their own stories and images in an ephemeral and enduring response to the exhibition. Following the performance, a conversation with the artist and open printmaking will take place in the KAM Cafe.
