The Workshops

Welcome to the Sense of Site Workshops!

This is a series of studio art workshops being offered this Spring Semester 2013 in the Department of Art | Art History | Design at Michigan State University, with support from the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum.

The Sense of Site Workshops are a series of three workshops and related opportunities designed around an exhibition of work by internationally-recognized artist Naiza Khan.  This exhibition opens in the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum on the MSU campus in late February, and is curated by MSU faculty member Karin Zitzewitz (Art History and Visual Culture).

Visiting Artist Naiza Khan & Workshop Content

The Sense of Site Workshops will provide studio art students with the opportunity to meet with visiting artist Naiza Khan for a tailored discussion of her work in regard to site and cross-media exploration.  Workshop participants will attend the artist’s gallery talk, engage in hands-on cross-media experimentation, and produce finished cross- and mixed-media artworks around the theme “sense of site.”  These finished artworks will be included in an exhibition in Kresge Art Center in April 2013.
