Fresh Fruit: Zine Making

FRESH FRUIT: ZINE MAKING

Saturdays 14, 21, 28 September and 5, 12, 19 October 2019, 2-4pm, various locations. Free. 15 places for 16-25 year olds.

A zine-making project about your experience of art and architecture, conceived as part of Fresh Fruit, The Fruitmarket Gallery’s peer-led programme for young adults aged 16-25. Zines are small self-made publications and can be about anything – what you did last week; the music or art you like; or political, personal and social issues. Quick and cheap to produce, they have a radical underground history where anything goes and different voices can be heard.

In collaboration with the Edinburgh Zine Library and Out of the Blueprint, you will design and produce a collective zine to be presented in The Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop.

In the context of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building refurbishment in 2019-20, the programme includes visits to recently developed arts and cultural spaces in Edinburgh to look at their buildings and exhibition programmes. We’ll also take an exclusive peek at The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development in progress.

Creative content for the zine is up to you. No prior experience is necessary and you’ll be supported to develop ideas and pursue your interests to make a collective publication that could include exhibition reviews, photography, doodles and creative writing. Roles on the project include design and production of the publication, so there’s something for everyone interested in writing, drawing, art, buildings and professionally producing work for public display.

The project takes place over six Saturday afternoons followed by a launch event, and you can come along to one or all of the sessions. Book in below.

A zine-making project about your experience of art and architecture, conceived as part of Fresh Fruit, The Fruitmarket Gallery’s peer-led programme for young adults aged 16-25. Zines are small self-made publications and can be about anything – what you did last week; the music or art you like; or political, personal and social issues. Quick and cheap to produce, they have a radical underground history where anything goes and different voices can be heard.

In collaboration with the Edinburgh Zine Library and Out of the Blueprint, you will design and produce a collective zine to be presented in The Fruitmarket Gallery bookshop.

In the context of The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building refurbishment in 2019-20, the programme includes visits to recently developed arts and cultural spaces in Edinburgh to look at their buildings and exhibition programmes. We’ll also take an exclusive peek at The Fruitmarket Gallery’s building development in progress.

Creative content for the zine is up to you. No prior experience is necessary and you’ll be supported to develop ideas and pursue your interests to make a collective publication that could include exhibition reviews, photography, doodles and creative writing. Roles on the project include design and production of the publication, so there’s something for everyone interested in writing, drawing, art, buildings and professionally producing work for public display.

The project takes place over six Saturday afternoons followed by a launch event, and you can come along to one or all of the sessions. Book in below.

Fresh Fruit Leader Training

Thu 28 Mar, 6–8pm. Free. 8 places for 16–25 year olds. Book via Eventbrite

Learn how to lead and support arts workshops for young people and become a Fresh Fruit Leader, supported by artists Louise Fraser and Natasha Ruwona. You’ll find out how to plan and deliver arts and discussion-based activities inspired by the Senga Nengudi exhibition, with the opportunity to put your skills into practice to deliver Young Creatives Workshops on Sun 14 Apr and Sun 12 May.

About the Senga Nengudi exhibition
We are delighted to bring to the Fruitmarket Gallery the first solo institutional exhibition of the work of Senga Nengudi outside the United States. Originally organised by the Henry Moore Institute, the exhibition brings together pioneering sculpture, photography and documentation of performance from 1969 to the present, including recreations of work not seen since the 1970s and a major new installation.

Born in Chicago in 1943, Senga Nengudi has been a trailblazer in sculpture for fifty years. A vital figure in the avant-garde scenes of Los Angeles and New York in the 1960s and 1970s, her work is characterised by a persistently radical experimentation with material and form.

Among Nengudi’s earliest works are her Untitled (Water Composition)sculptures from the late 1960s–1970s. Made from heat-sealed transparent vinyl and filled with coloured water, these works have been unseen for forty years, and a number have been recreated especially for this exhibition. Undermining the static and industrial tendencies of Minimalist sculpture, these abstract water sculptures hang and flop with the weight of a body, mimicking flesh while responding to the viewer’s touch.

The R.S.V.P. series is perhaps Nengudi’s best known body of work, and the exhibition includes several significant examples. Begun in 1975, the works are made with nylon tights stretched, knotted, filled with sand and mounted between the walls and the floor. Nengudi has referred to these influential pieces as ‘abstracted reflections of used bodies’ and they remain powerful, yet humble, icons of the triumphs and traumas of the human body. As well as exhibiting them as sculpture, Nengudi used them in performance, and the exhibition includes the triptych of photographs Performance Piece(1978), in which Maren Hassinger, a long-time collaborator and choreographer, interacts with R.S.V.P. sculptures.

Much of Nengudi’s work has been informed by her longstanding interest in spiritual rituals across cultures. Ceremony for Freeway Fets(1978) comprises eleven photographs documenting a performance Nengudi made with Hassinger, David Hammons and members of the Studio Z collective in a Los Angeles freeway underpass in 1978. A new Sandmining installation was made specially for the exhibition, and is shown alongside elements from the Wet Night – Early Dawn – Scat Chant – Pilgrim’s Song series from the 1990s, the works together exploring the artist’s ongoing investigations into the commonalities of different belief systems and pilgrimage.

Offering an expansive overview of Nengudi’s practice and shedding light on the work of a figure fundamental to Postminimalism, this exhibition asserts Nengudi’s vital position within a generation of artists who redefined the possibilities of sculpture and representations of race and gender, while drawing upon a tradition of abstraction.

This exhibition is curated by Laurence Sillars, Head of Henry Moore Institute Programmes and is currently showing at Henry Moore Institute, Leeds from  21 September 2018 – 17 February 2019.
