"Young women ages 13–18 were invited to join us earlier this month for WexLab: 10 GIRLS: Un-selfie Video with Liz Roberts, a one-day intensive video workshop. Participants spent the day in the Performance Space working together and separately to create this video compilation, making choices about how to depict themselves and voice their thoughts through video with Roberts’ support. It’s great to see the range and depth!
Special thanks to our helper/volunteers Elizabeth, Caitlin, Sarah, and Rachel."
"Five young women—and their teacher—from The Academy of Urban Scholars in Columbus joined us in March for a day-long WexLab: 5 GIRLS: Un-selfie Video with video artist Liz Roberts. Participants spent the day in the Performance Space working on the videos in this compilation, discussing careers in the arts, and talking about life in general, as well as how we make choices about how we depict ourselves (and why). The workshop also included pizza and tours of the exhibitions HASSAN HAJJAJ: MY ROCK STARS EXPERIMENTAL, VOLUME 1 and FIBER: SCULPTURE 1960–PRESENT.
Special thanks to our helper/volunteers Jean, Marisa, Elizabeth, Aubre, Dionne, and Andy."
