TEEN ARTIST ENCOUNTER with Wes Bruce
"WE ARE ALL THREAD"
…the Teen Arts Council explored the meaning of this phrase in the context of their lives and a greater “cultural fabric” in their Artist Encounter last month with artist/illustrator/educator/designer/poet/all-around-great-guy Wes Bruce, visiting from Colorado. In an intensive two-day workshop, teens got the chance to work with Wes on a collaborative piece in the ICA’s Art Lab - a massive Cultural Fabric collage made with materials - new and old - like wood, string, fabric, old photos and books, and even vintage typewriters. With tapes playing and a wide-open weekend ahead of them, Wes and the teens got into the process of making together, taking time to reflect on their own histories, culture, and to whom and what they are threaded to.
The teens’ completed piece can be seen in the Art Lab, located off of the ICA’s lobby. Come in on a Saturday from 2:30-4:30 to take part in Make/Made, an activity open to the public in which you can contribute to Wes’s collaborative “WE ARE ALL THREAD” piece on the wall opposite  the teens’ installation. Weave string or rope around and across the screws that outline these words, write your own poem on a typewriter to hang up amongst the others and contribute to the larger story, or take it home as a keepsake of your own story.
The ICA Teens would like to thank Wes for the intensive, creative, reflective weekend of making! Check out Wes Bruce’s The Curious Life to learn more about his work.

MASSQ WORKSHOP WITH DANIEL CALLAHAN
The Teen Arts Councl’s Co-Educator this year is Boston artist Daniel Callahan. Daniel walked the TAC through his work’s history and process, a ritualistic face-masking practice in which he uses his own face as his canvas. A “MassQ,” as Daniel calls his works, is a new “mask” that does not conceal one’s identity, but rather, embodies it. After first learning to diagram the human face and incorporate an introspective mirror-gazing exercise into the brainstorm process, the TAC brought their designs (pictured above) to life on their own faces. Look out for the big reveal of TAC’s MassQ Group Portrait for 2014!
