Falling in Love

(with Angie Quick)

February, 2021

Making art — engaging with the creative act — is a process of constantly falling in love. Join painter, poet, and performer Angie Quick for five lessons in love-falling, each centering catharsis and the construction of love letters to the cosmos.

  1. Letters: engaging works by Emily Dickinson, Tracey Emin, Louise Bourgeois, Anne Carson, Cy Twombly, and more.
  2. Rituals/tributes/offerings/altars/ephemera: gathering concrete inspiration from immediate surroundings.
  3. Testaments/citations/lists: creating small works on paper that play with erasure, censoring, and bleeding.
  4. Portrait & nuance: self-portraiture, desire portraits, and scribbling / dance.
  5. Voyeurism/mindfulness: drawing love stories, love notes, and windows of desire.

  • Sunday, Feb 14 (7pm–8pm EST/UTC-5)
