Collage Workshop with Enrique “Kiké” Congrains


516 ARTS welcomes back collagist Enrique “Kiké” Congrains, founder of CollageWave, an inter-national collage organization he leads from his home base in Lima, Peru. In this hands-on workshop, participants will bring images from the past into the present moment. Participants will learn how to work with X-Acto knives to create geometrical shapes and intricate fretwork integrated with historic photos from the Albuquerque Museum Photography Archives and participants’ own photo collections. Congrains will speak about his research in Latin American collage and its activist roles in Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, and Peru, and about his own collage practice in which he is the Mayor of Canson City, a collage town he invented as a vehicle for storytelling.

In-person at 516 ARTS • FEE: $60 / $50 members • Registration: viola@516arts.org
