Collaborative artists Eric Moschopedis and Mia Rushton will talk about their “radical crafting” and other projects at the next ART101 Visiting Lecture at Red Deer College on Monday.
Rushton, a graduate of the Alberta College of Art and Design, uses elements of screen printing, sewing, knitting and drawing to create installation artwork that encourages civic engagement and intervention “through small gestures.”
Moschopedis is an award-winning interdisciplinary performer, facilitator, educator and curator who combines his child-like curiosity with the scrutiny of an ethnographer to create works that invite audience collaboration in the creation of community.
The two artists, who have been working together for nearly a decade, have presented projects, workshops and lectures across North America and Europe. They will speak at 7 p.m. at Margaret Parson’s Theatre at Red Deer College. Everyone is welcome to attend.
