***NOTE: This event will meet next to the Rubenstein Arts Center, inside a vintage 1966 Frolic camper! Look for signs***

About the workshop:

This pop-up art experience—inside a vintage 1966 Frolic camper—will encourage participants and viewers to consider their relationship to mending, sentimental objects, single-use items, and radical (potentially non-functional) modes of repair.

After months of repair to the trailer itself, step into the Radical Repair Workshop during its first visit to Duke’s campus on the heels of its premiere at Durham’s Third Friday. Inside you will find a small gallery, a workshop space, and information on both repair in general and the project in specific. You can get involved by bringing an item to donate (more info here) or working on an ongoing collaborative mending project on site.

About the instructor:

Julia Gartrell is an artist and educator based in Durham, NC. She received an MFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BA in art from Kalamazoo College.  Her work explores notions of “making do”, material plasticity, and radical approaches to repair.

She has participated in residencies at the Rubenstein Art Center, the Fine Arts Work Center, the Power Plant Gallery at Duke University, Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, Ox-Bow School of Art, and others. Julia has exhibited nationally and internationally, and currently teaches as adjunct faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University.
