HEAT WAVES #3 | KRIS REPPAS
Take Care: Beading Workshop
When: Saturday August 22nd 2020 / 2PM-4PM
Where: Eyelevel / 2177B Gottingen Street
Please join Eyelevel's HEAT WAVES Resident #3 @Kris_Reppas for an afternoon of beadwork, snacks, and good vibes! This workshop will take place indoors at Eyelevel and will be a closed space for Queer, Trans, and BIPOC folks.
Participants will learn how to bead a small heart design and be able to participate in a larger discussion around care practices. How do we show care for ourselves, for others, for strangers?
This workshop is free but we ask that you register in advance as we can only accommodate 10 participants! You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
HEAT WAVES incoming !!!
Another 2 weeks has already gone by! Eyelevel is excited to be welcoming Kris Reppas into our space as the next Heat Waves artist in residence. Kris will be with us from August 10th to August 22nd. Stay tuned for what @Kris_reppas (instagram handle) will be up to!
Kris Reppas (he/him) is a Queer, Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) artist currently residing in K’jipuktuk, the unceded and unsurrendered land of the Mi’kmaq People. His work brings together screenprinting, pornography, and beadwork in order to make conversations around sex, gender, and pornography more accessible. Growing up in a small conservative town, Kris found that these conversations were increasingly hard to participate in. As a result, he creates work that is meant to be tactile. The viewer can interact with the prints based on their boundaries and come to terms with these topics in a safe environment that promotes healing, kinship, and grounding.
