Summer School Marfa Evening and Break Through After Party at TAAK & De Punt

July 4, 2013 — July 4, 2013

Presentations and talks at Summer School Marfa Independence Day

Texmex night at TAAK



From May 20 to June 10, 16 students from the Dutch Art Institute, the Sandberg Instituut/Gerrit Rietveld Academie and California College of Arts (CCA) participated in Summer School Marfa, a three week fieldtrip and student fieldwork studio in Marfa, Texas. Aiming to expand contemporary discourses, social practices and politics in art, Summer School Marfa created a unique experience and opportunity for students to gain an understanding of the dynamics and social impact of art in public spaces. By examining the transformation of Marfa, students engaged in a critical analysis of the value and use of public art using fieldwork methods.

July 4th students, tutors and artists will talk about their experiences and present their work.

Texmex b.b.q., drinks and music will be available

Time to be announced!
