Workshop: The Intimacy of Memory

Sunday, October 2, 2016
1:00 pm-5:00 pm
New Art Center, 61 Washington Park, Newtonville

Workshop: The Intimacy of Memory

NAC student Nancy Marks and her collaborator, Annie Brewster MD, invite the NAC community to honor loved ones lost in the opioid epidemic, and challenge viewers to rethink the narrative surrounding stigmatized deaths. First, a free workshop invites participants to bring photographs and mementos to inspire and create artwork. These pieces, along with images and audio recordings of participants’ stories will build the exhibition. The reception will feature a discussion aimed at reshaping how we think about those affected by this crisis.
