Mapping Black Archives: A Collage Workshop with Alexandra Antoine

May 13, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The South Side Community Art Center, in collaboration with Mural Arts presents Mapping Black Archives, a collage workshop hosted by Alexandra Antoine, with Andrea Yarbrough. This is an invitation to explore Black archives through collage using maps, magazines, ephemera, and photos of black women as source material. The final works will be markers, honoring Black women cultural workers. Each marker is reserved space in Yarbrough’s forthcoming installation, Collective Steps, an homage to the scores of Black women committed to sustaining the South Side Community Arts Center.

All materials will be supplied, however participants are welcome to bring personal ephemera to be included. This event is open to all ages, and is intended as a moment of connection so partners (mother/daughter, sisters, friends, etc.) are encouraged to attend together.

Please keep the following in mind ahead of your attendance:

  • You are encouraged to bring your own images/ephemera/materials (no paint)
  • Images/materials for participants to use will be available
  • Partners encouraged (mother/daughter, sisters, friend, etc.)
