Family Dynamic: Lara Schnitger and Matthew Monahan with Tingri

Sunday, January 18, 2015 | 10 am

For artists Lara Schnitger and Matthew Monahan, whose works are represented in LACMA’s collection, art is not just a career, but a way of life. Schnitger is a sculptor and installation artist best known for bleaching, collaging, knitting, sewing, and stretching fabric over wooden armatures. Monahan creates drawings, sculptures, and assemblage using a variety of materials, including charcoal, drywall, wax, and glass. They share a studio with their equally creative daughter, eight-year-old Tingri, who has her own artistic practice and a longstanding art project in development. Work collaboratively with this inspiring family of makers in this workshop focused on process.  Use stencils, bleach, and other emulsion processes to transform fabric in unexpected ways.

Family Dynamic is a new series of hands-on experiences that uncover the ways artists cultivate creativity within their family. Co-led by acclaimed contemporary artists from LACMA’s collection and their children, the workshops reveal the creative exchange that takes place between parent and child and the ways they draw inspiration from each other. View a schedule of additional family workshops.
