Can love occupy the same space as resistance?

Can love occupy the same space as resistance?

How does love hinder or catapult our most revolutionary and transformative desires for our communities? How do we respond to non-loving attack? What are the ways that we resist? What do we resist?

UWM Community Art senior, Nicole Naudi, in collaboration with Pink Salt Art Collective invites the public to take part in a series of writing workshops and group discussions dedicated to unpacking themes of love, activism and reverence. 

Through guided poetry readings, writing activities and critical conversation, we will explore: how does love occupy the same space as resistance? 

Participants will have the opportunity to submit any written work generated through the workshops to Pink Salt Art Collective's upcoming zine, Makewell Vol. 2. Makewell is a biannual publication showcasing text-based work of local and national writers and artists, existing both online and as a limited physical edition. 

Each session will grow out of different activities and readings, so we encourage you to visit more than one! Come write, talk, and transform discourse into creative energy!

Was young: crayons in the ashtray

Was young: crayons in the ashtray

Was Young is a show with works by Haley Kreofsky, Kara Zielbelman, Jannet Habibovic, Walter Smits, and Maks Prykhodko that display childlike curiosity, spontaneity, and chaos filtered through the adult brain.  

Calvin said I suppose it will all make sense when we grow up but, like, it doesn’t, so we make art.  

There will be a lemonade stand during the reception, a mini skate park so folks can get rad, and lots of other toys and stuff to look at.  

Curated by Walter Smits.

Con mi cepillo de pintura / With my paintbrush

Con mi cepillo de pintura / With my paintbrush

Paintings from Jordin Alanis + Emily Tripp

“Con mi cepillo de pintura” – Jordin creates paintings that begin as drawings inspired by past experiences, metaphors, or other human experiences and evolve into ambiguous, poetic paintings.

“With my paint brush“ – Emily creates paintings that operate in almost the exact opposite format, starting with representational imagery, cutting them up, creating gnarly collaged objects from the shreds, and then using the objects as a one to one reference for a painting. 

“Con mi cepillo de pintura / With my paintbrush,” illustrates what it means for these two painters to create objects that utilize the action and result of painting a painting, to speak louder than words, or often less successful than words.
