Social Dress Lower East Side

Takashi Horisaki is a Manhattan-based artist born in Tokyo, Japan. Horisaki’s practice is a sculptural exploration of the histories recorded in the surfaces of objects, people and architectures in which he designs performative systems and object-making processes that become metaphors for the effects of time on our bodies and our environments.

This summer, Horisaki will be holding a series of workshops as part of his project: Social Dress Lower East Side – Material MemoriesYou are invited to join the artist and his student team to learn the process of latex casting in a free sculptural workshop for LES communities. Bring your own memorable item from home to cast while sharing stories of these objects with each other.

Project Team: Takashi Horisaki, Bethany Chan, Bianca Yee, Cole Tracy, Grace Shun, Jordan Delzell, Meredith Cristal, Nissim Ram, Zoe Penina Baker
