Strange Makings Workshops

Social Practice

Workshops in Performative Public Art

Strange Makings are a series of workshops led by Ed Woodham designed to create performative public art that uses the concept of defamiliarization in order to experience the familiar in a different way. Strange Makings are actions that shake the performer and the audience out of complacency to remind us that anything is possible.

Residencies and workshops have been held at Endicott College, Beverly, MA; Eramboo Artist Environment, Sydney, Australia; University of North Carolina/Greensboro; thedrawingshed, London, UK; School of Visual Arts, New York; Parsons, The New School, New York; Hemispheric Institute, New York University, New York.
