    Dipped Painting Performance with Oliver Jeffers

    Thursday, Oct 20, 2016 6:00 - 8:00 PM @ MANA Contemporary
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Artist and author Oliver Jeffers’ Dipped Paintings project explores the enigmatic connection between loss and memory through an ongoing series of ceremonial performances, during which the artist permanently alters a fully realized, never-before-seen portrait by dipping it in opaque enamel paint. At this CIW Lab, you’ll have a unique chance to see Jeffers dip one of his paintings and join him for cocktails where you’ll hear the story behind his process. By attending this lab, you’ll be one of the few people in the world who will know exactly what the painting looks like before it gets dipped.
