About the Event
In this workshop with artist-in-residence Kimberly Anderson, participants will have the opportunity to create their own anthotypes. Anthotypes are images created by using photosensitive material from plants. In this workshop, participants will be using plants and food stuffs culturally relevant to the African American diaspora to make prints with the sun in the garden of the Peter Bullough Foundation. This workshop honors Black History and Earth Day and is sponsored in part by the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for the Arts and First Bank.
The image shown for this workshop is an anthotype test of Kimberly's grandmother prepping collard greens on watercolor paper with collard green emulsion. Her notes are included in the bottom right of the full image.
Please note that due to the fickle nature of the anthotype process, participants may need to return to pick up their prints at a later (one week) date as processing times may vary!
About the Artist
Kimberly Anderson is a Brooklyn-based visual artist with roots in Richmond, Va. Her work combines photography and collage in a practice that examines themes of memory, identity and the shared cultural experiences within Black family histories. She explores the intricacies of her own family oral history and the importance of African American storytelling, while examining how fragile and susceptible to disappearance these memories and stories are. Her work is multi dimensional and often centers themes of Black family folklore, imagination & spirituality with her own family as a recurring subject matter. By combining photography, collage, and alternative processes, she creates visual portals that question the value & volatility of memory. In her collage work, she creates alternate worlds guided by celestial and ancestral realms. In her ongoing practice, she seeks to reference historical knowledge of the past to sow new seeds that inform the future. Kimberly’s work has been exhibited at Revelations Gallery, The International Center of Photography, skArtspace, and also featured with Kinship Photography Collective, Acres of Ancestry, Bronx Narratives Magazine & The Life at Six Feet Photography Project.
