BMA Makers: Alchemy of the Everyday with William Cordova

*This event has been canceled.*

Join interdisciplinary artist and cultural practitioner William Cordova for an in-gallery presentation and group reading followed by hands-on art-making experience inspired by the exhibition, William Cordova: on the lower frequencies i speak 4 u.

Visitors will tour the exhibition with the artist while thinking together about the epilogue of Ralph Ellison’s landmark novel, Invisible Man—the source for Cordova’s exhibition title. After looking closely at the work, visitors will explore the artist’s enchantment with alchemy through a hands-on art-making experience. Inspired by Cordova’s experimental process, participants will transform and combine a variety of materials into something new using the artist and his work as a guide to examine vignettes of their own family stories.

Participants are invited to bring sentimental items to inspire and incorporate into their projects. Check-in is at 6 p.m. The program begins at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
