Creative Arts Workshop is proud to announce the next installment of its Made Visible exhibition series. Made Visible: Through Errors presents new work by Connecticut-based multimedia artist, Binwanka.
Note: Given the nature of the video installation, viewing is best in the evening hours. CAW will be open until 8:30 pm M-F through the end of February to accommodate visitors inside the gallery. The installation is also made visible through our sidewalk-to-roofline windows.
The Made Visible series began in 2020, as a new program in its continued work to advance and make visible work by artists of color at CAW. CAW committed to continue the series annually during Black History Month to feature and foreground Black, CT-based artists working in a variety of media to explore the intersections of Black stories, voices, culture, history, creative expression, and social justice. “In this work we hope to better serve and represent both Black artists and the New Haven community at large,” said CAW executive director, Anne Coates.
Binwanka is a generalist experimenting with art, design, and technology. He has exhibited work nationally and internationally in spaces like the Louvre and Times Square. He studied design at UCONN, SCSU, and Parsons. He has also performed live improvised music during open mics in New York City, the electronic music festival in Brooklyn, NY, Make Music Day in New Haven, CT and the Creative Music Orchestra at SCSU. He has worked as a dream coach and speaker during art counts day in Bridgeport, CT. He is also a dj and programmer at WPKN 89.5 FM, a non profit radio station in Bridgeport, CT.
“While producing new works I have come to view technology as a medium with a large amount of possibilities and creative potential. I’ve also worked to use my interests in abstract art, pixel art, television and animation as sources of inspiration. I also have created a process that allows room for experimentation, iteration, and viewing mistakes and errors as potential starting points for new pieces. Through the combination of these three ideas I have produced a new collection of 6 pieces of abstract experimental video art for this exhibition,” said Binwanka.
Anne Coates said, “Creative Arts Workshop is excited about this exhibition featuring Binwanka and his new work. We are so pleased to have him bring technology and art to CAW, inspire new conversations, and join us as we celebrate Black History Month.“
Made Visible: Through Errors runs from February 1st through February 28th, 2022 and can be on the first floor of the Hilles Gallery. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
