Join Inprint for a curator talk and interactive writing activity on the exhibition Hyperreal: Gray Foy that will flex your creative muscles. Experience for yourself the rewards and pleasures of creative writing.
Between the 1940s and 1970s, American artist Gray Foy (1922–2012) created a body of extraordinarily meticulous drawings, most often rendered in graphite on paper. Intrigued by Surrealism and Magic Realism as a young artist, Foy characterized his artistic method as “hyper-realism.” His exacting technique—which required intense concentration and even months to complete a single drawing—rewards sustained looking. The exhibition spans the entirety of Foy’s career, from his early Surrealist compositions to his later inventive botanical and geological renderings.
Writer and Inprint Prize Winner Layla Al-Bedawi will guide attendees in this free hour-and-a-half writing workshop centered around themes from the exhibition. No prior creative writing workshop experience needed.
