Event Description

Join PW exhibiting artist Umber Majeed to create postcard sized lenticular prints, or prints that give the illusion of depth and movement.

Umber Majeed: Made in Trans-Pakistan marks the latest chapter in the artist’s ongoing project titled Trans-Pakistan Zindabad (Long Live Trans-Pakistan), which brings together augmented reality, ceramic sculptures, and video to explore nostalgia, gentrification, and urbanization in Lahore and South Asia. The media installation, on view from September 9-December 11, is the first solo institutional presentation by the Pioneer Works former technology artist-in-residence.

Join exhibitor Umber Majeed to create postcard sized lenticular prints, or prints that give the illusion of depth and movement, to explore how to activate archives similar to the exhibition, Made in Trans-Pakistan. Participants will explore the process of converting a 2D image into a 3D experience as they manipulate a set of images using Adobe Photoshop, inkjet prints, lenticular sheets, and lamination to create their own unique piece.

Date: This in-person workshop will meet on Monday, October 3 and Wednesday October 5 from 7-9pm.

Price: $0-75

Audience: Open to all.

Materials: Supplies will be provided.
