Talk: Responding to Sarah Charlesworth: Creative Writing Workshop with Karen Holden

10 am | Sat, January 27, 2018
Art of the Americas Building

Sarah Charlesworth (1947–2013) was a highly influential artist whose work examined the role that photographic images play in contemporary culture. Over Charlesworth’s 40-year career she explored representation and symbolism, first through re-photographing and collaging found images, and later through creating stylized arrangements for the camera. Inspired by Sarah Charlesworth: Doubleworld, participants in this special gallery session will respond to Charlesworth’s work through creative writing and poetry with the guidance of Karen Holden.

Karen Holden is a poet, painter, book artist, and educator. Holden is the author of Behind My Own Disguise, Book of Changes, based on the ancient Chinese text I Ching; This Music, a manuscript of poems written in response to music; and How Love Comes Home: Los Angeles in Four Voices. She has served on the faculty of The Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, where her curriculums integrated writing, literature, and design. She continues to teach creative writing and persuasive writing at colleges, museums, conferences, and social institutions.
