Yollo Lab presents:
Punchline: A Rubbings Workshop lead by Hope Wang

We invite you into an exercise considering how pattern, texture, and other material qualities draw together an understanding of space. Whether we notice the wobbly grid of a metal grate, or the fuzzy holes of a pegboard, or the raised zigzags on a stool, subtle details of everyday surfaces form the background of environments people inhabit.
Attendees will respond to the Yollo Lab studio space to create embossed tin tiles that draw these material and visual relationships together. While space acts as the framework for how we perceive our surroundings, the sum of these small gestures will be soldered into a collective collage that foregrounds our interaction with space.

Yollocalli Arts Reach is in residency at Barrett Park and Harrison Park, through the Chicago Park District’s Arts Partners in Residence Program, which unites artists and communities in Chicago’s parks.
