MACHO STEREO explores the relationships between men and their fathers. It is inspired the book Pedro Paramo written by Juan Rulfo.
Concurrent to the Father Figure workshops at the Brentwood Art Center are book groups and outreach activities at several SMPL branches throughout Santa Monica. Workshops are for adults 18+, free and open to the public of all genders. Materials will be supplied.
Participants of all genders are welcome to attend either or both Father Figure workshops to create autobiographical collages about themselves and their Father Figure, or their Father. We will have a color printer on hand, so if you can – please bring pictures of your father, or you and your father, or any documents, photographs, deeds, certificates, awards, diplomas, ephemera significant to the history of your father, or you and your father. These images will be the basis of your Father Figure collage. All items will be handled with care and returned to you.
Workshops will open with a participatory discussion about our Father Figures led by Marcus Kuiland-Nazario in consultation with MACHO STEREO collaborator and therapist Mario Prietto.
Workshops are for adults 18+ of all genders. Materials will be supplied.
