Emma Kohlmann will discuss her studio practice, recent shows, as well as her week-long residency as a Guest Artist in Print at UT Austin.
Her GAPP project will involve intense mark making research and will draw upon her background in self-publishing to re-imagine the exquisite corpse zines with the assistance of UT Austin students. Unlike the exquisite corpses of the past, Kohlmann's project, while bound by narrative, will not follow the guidelines of a beginning, middle and end. Join us to hear more about the project and Kohlmann's broader practice.
