Join artist Mieke Vanmechelen in this Saturday Masterclass that explores performance and filmmaking. Inspired by the artist’s own practice and interests, participants will discover performative techniques utilizing the museum spaces and the natural landscape of the university lower grounds. Participants will have the opportunity to learn basic filming and editing skills as they work collaboratively to develop an original short film.

Mieke Vanmechelen’s work is exhibited as part of the Glucksman exhibition Home.
