Recalling Memory through Objects and Sound

June 27, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Recalling Memory through Objects and Sound
Presented by Tamara Becerra Valdez
Date: Saturday, June 27, 2015 from 1:00 – 3:00 PM
Admission: $5 or FREE with the donation of a plant (succulents recommended)

Expanding on her Archive of Ephemera (a collection of objects that sometimes appears in and informs her work), YLA 20 artist Tamara Becerra Valdez will invite guests from the Austin community to join her for an afternoon of collecting and recording memories.

During this event/workshop, participants will be asked to bring an object of significance that recalls an important memory of association in their lives. The program will deal with larger themes from the exhibition of highlighting cultural heritage and personal history. The objects brought in will be photographed and participants will be asked to contribute a sound recording recalling the memory associated with the object. All images and recordings will be uploaded onto the Museum’s Tumblr page extending the exhibition beyond the gallery walls.
