From the organizer:

Have you ever considered picking up a brush to paint, but then gave up because you didn’t know where to start? Did you know we can now use machines (and not just our hands) to create artworks? In this fast-paced world, how closely-intertwined with human life do you think machines and technologies are becoming? Will machines (digital tools, and even AI) help expand the boundaries of contemporary art? If this sounds like you, then come join us in this workshop with artist UuDam Tran Nguyen, where he will talk about his work License2Draw – L2D (a ‘robotic hand’ that can draw!), and join in on a ‘collective drawing’ session with other participants using the L2D app. Who knows, this might be your chance to bring home your first artwork!

This workshop is part of the educational programming for ‘Illuminated Curiosities’, an exhibition presented by Nguyen Art Foundation.

Working with video, performance, photography, sculpture and new media, UuDam’s playfully provocative practice is one of the most diversified in Vietnamese contemporary art today.
