Third Saturday workshop with Jon Kinzel
What is the value of a minute?
Saturday, June 15, 2–4 PM

What is the value of a minute? We will consider the notion of making something from nothing and nothing from something. At the end of “class” participants will have explored an interrelated movement and object making practice.

Street clothes are fine, you need not break a sweat.
This workshop is free for all ages, drop-ins are welcome!

About Jon Kinzel:
A 2023-2024 Guggenheim Fellowship has allowed Kinzel to deepen his interrelated choreographic and visual art practice. He has contributed to online and print publications – SFMoMA’s Open Space, Schizm Magazine, MR Performance Journal, and PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art – served as a dance dramaturg, and sound designer. As a curator he established a platform for Asian Cultural Council grantees to present their work in New York City at Sundays on Broadway, and he co-curated Bound and Boundaryless – dance and performance on video – at Telematic Media Arts in San Francisco. Standing in a Doorway and Calling It a Dance (2021), at Roulette, and Queens Terminus (2022), at The Chocolate Factory, were made with the support of a MacDowell Fellowship.
He feels fortunate to have collaborated with a variety of artists: Vicky Shick, Margaret Jenkins, Risa Jaroslow, Rinde Eckert, Elena Demyanenko, Jodi Melnick, Cassim Shepard, Yvonne Rainer, Emily Coates, Cathy Weis, Jennifer Miller and others. As an educator, he has worked in several university, liberal arts, and conservatory settings and with Lincoln Center Education/New York City schools, The Merce Cunningham Trust, The New York Studio School, and Movement Research.

SFArtsED is thrilled to present a series of free visual-arts workshops which will take place every Third Saturday of each month from 2–4 PM in the SFArtsED gallery at 1275 Minnesota Street.

From shadow puppet-making to paper-pulp sculpture and beyond, these workshops are a great way to learn about new art processes and techniques. Materials are provided and drop-ins are welcome.
