Join Black Cube for a special workshop led by Mexico City-based artist and Black Cube Artist Fellow, Anuar Maauad. Participants are invited to create small figures using air-dry clay, a material that has informed the artist’s ongoing body of work and most recent exhibition at GAVLAK Gallery in Los Angeles. All materials will be supplied, and the sculptures made by participants will become a part of Maauad’s sculptural archive.
Additionally, those who participated in Maauad’s 2019 city-wide Black Cube project in Denver, SHARE, are welcome to meet the artist and pick up their custom storage box and certificate of authenticity. SHARE is series of 100 bronze, sculptural text installations that were gifted to the public and displayed on building facades throughout the city, as a token of generosity to the community. Each work reads “To share is precious, pure, and fair” and several remain on view at dispersed locations in the Denver area.
Anuar Maauad lives and works in Mexico City. Maauad’s work examines the relationship between political identity and social memory, and the subject of the perceptive experience. Maauad founded Casa Maauad (2010-2017), an artist-run residency program in Mexico City that hosted more than 60 national and international artists, curators, and critics from all disciplines. His work can be found in significant collections, including the Jumex Foundation in Mexico, the Costantini Collection in Argentina, the Denver Art Museum, among others. Maauad is represented by Efrain Lopez Gallery in Chicago. He received his BS in Architecture from the Universidad de Las Américas, Puebla, and a BFA from La Esmeralda (Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado), Mexico City.
