Inventor’s Office Hours
Floor 3, Hess Family Theater & Hearst Artspace
Take inspiration from Pippa Garner's Inventor's Office as we experiment with anthropomorphising objects that have become obsolete. Drop into this workshop with Teaching Artist Jaqueline Cedar to contribute to a collaborative artwork— draw and collage to invent new functions for once familiar and now obsolete consumer goods.

Feeling Even Better
Floor 3, Hearst Artspace
The Biennial’s subtitle Even Better Than the Real Thing acknowledges the impact of AI on art, complications of land stewardship, and amplifies the rhetoric around identity reflected by contemporary artists. Join Teaching Artist Kristin Roeder for this drop-in workshop and make a button to take home reflecting how this Biennial makes you feel.
