Exploring Identity through Culture

04/17/2021 to 04/17/2021

8000 York Road, Towson, MD 21252

Virtual Workshop: Exploring Identity through Culture, Saturday, April 17. 1pm. bit.ly/AsiaNorth2021-LekBorjaWorkshop. Co-presented with Asian Pasifika Arts Collective (APAC). Who Am I? How does my culture affect me? How can culture and personal memory shape my understanding about my identity? Join artist, Lek Vercauteren Borja, to learn how some contemporary artists explore these questions in their work or practice, reflect on significant events in your life, and create a collage to begin exploring (notions of) who you are using a combination of found materials, written text / personal reflections, and drawings. Materials needed: scissors or x-acto knife, glue or tape, cutting mat or thick cardboard that’s about 12 x 18 inches, blank paper or cardstock, drawing tools (pencil, pen, marker, etc.) and 2D printed materials such as magazines, comics, family photos, paper, wall paper, dried plants, etc. Lek Vercauteren Borja: I emigrated from the Philippines to the U.S. with my family at age 10. Since then, I have moved through the world many times feeling displaced. Internalizing such experience brought out the necessity for me to make art which reconsiders Filipino identity.
