Anxiety Society Drawing Jam @ The Kamloops Art Gallery
Taking inspiration from the contemporary Surrealist works in Unreal, drop in and draw your most pressing anxieties. Surrealism developed in part as a response to political and economic strife caused by the Great Wars centered in Europe. Contemporary life is subject to some of the same instabilities and inequalities that characterized this period in history. Using automatic and collaborative processes, we will draw the fears and phobias (great and small) that stem from the uncertainty of this age, creating an index of contemporary fears as we experience them.
