Description

Join this unique 'Creative Rendezvous' session where we will be discovering the fascinating world of Wassily Kandinsky and creating your own masterpiece accompanied by live music.

Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian painter, graphic artist and art theorist. It would not be an understatement to call him the Father of abstract modern art. During the workshop we will concentrate on a few aspects of his creative process. Besides his work in visual arts, he had a passion for music, poetry and theater. He himself actually played the piano and the cello, and wrote verses and scripts.

We will explore some of his work where he connected visual and audio modes, and we will discuss the process of seeing sounds, the synesthesia. We will talk about his collaboration with Schoenberg, and see some bits of the Kandinsky’s performance Pictures at an Exhibition – a music piece by Mussorgsky, which was created under a strong impression of the Viktor Hartmann’s exhibition.

This constant dialogue between the different artistic domains is what interests me the most. This inner connection and cross-inspiration is what I would like to explore more during the workshop. As the culmination of this, we will touch upon Kandinsky’s Synthesis of Arts and performance The Yellow Sound.

After this introduction I will propose a few exercises where we will be interpreting different sounds and music using our own impressions, envisioned colors and forms. This is going to be a unique experience, since we will incorporate live music performed by Alex Choub, from Bassworks.

During this session you will be able to create your own art and no previous experience is needed for it.

The following materials are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own as well:

  • white paper
  • colored paper
  • pastels
  • scissors
  • glue
  • tea / coffee
  • light snacks

We are really looking forward to bringing art, music and colors together with you in unity to boost your creative energy this spring!
