Let’s Make Art! Family Workshop at Home: Elliott Hundley

Overview

Create your own collage inspired by the work of Broad collection artist Elliot Hundley.

Hundley’s works are inspired by classic plays, literature, and poetry. He visually portrays these narratives through collage and incorporates various materials that are typically associated with arts and crafts.

When Hundley creates his extremely detailed artworks, he first finds a story he wants to portray and then he casts friends and family members to act out the story. He takes their photos as they perform and collages those photos with other images and materials to create the whole setting of the narrative.

About Let's Make Art! Family Workshop at Home

Barbara Kruger’s Untitled (Your body is a battleground), 1989, is a stark emblem for feminist art practice—if the body is our battleground, it is through language that we fight. Inspired by Kruger's work and by similarly discursive artworks in the Broad collection, The Tip of Her Tongue program series features feminist artists in performance who work with language and embodiment. The artists in this series have intense stories to tell and experiment aggressively with the telling. The artists work with words to explore how the body's relationship to language is mediated by histories large and small. The body may both anchor and disrupt the story. It is a source of desire, grief, shame and laughter. These intimate performances explore the politics of representation—with how gender is produced in, through and as language; and how the stories we tell circulate around, move through, against and with the body.
