Open Studio: Raul Martinez

Guild Hall 158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY, USA
Organized by Guild Hall

Open Studio invites audiences to ask questions, view works in-process, and gain hands-on experience with the creative process of artists currently working or exhibiting at Guild Hall.

This Open Studio, which will take place for three days—Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, May 18-20 from 12-5 PM—will be led by cross-disciplinary artist Raul Martinez. Martinez’s work examines the intersections between art and language, and more specifically, the possibilities of using legal language (i.e., employment contracts, traffic rules and regulations, military training codes, etc.) as material for art, dance, and performance. Audiences are invited to join Martinez in a new collaborative in-process piece or begin an individual piece of their own with the materials on-site.

This Open Studio is programmed in tandem with the Guild Hall exhibition Spin A Yarn, where Martinez’s work is on view.

This program is free of charge. Advance reservations are not required.
