The artist then finds themselves in a dark wood: What is the story here? What is the piece really about? Is it even worth pushing ahead? . . . You’ve reached a moment of crisis: a difficult and yet necessary moment in the act of creation. How will you face and embrace this crisis to transform your work? What are the key question to guide you? How will you emerge out the other side with a work of art that is more true, more real, and more potent? Come listen to three artists speak about their artistic journey, chronicling a piece of art they’ve created, the moment (or moments!) of crisis and how they came out the other side. Together we will learn ways to welcome and embrace the generative moments of artistic crisis. Online with panelists Alex Burger, George Reyes, Ade Solanke and Shruti Swami false MM/DD/YYYY
