Eulogizing Through Collage with Artist in Residence, Maggie Kubley
October 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Join multi-media artist Maggie Kubley in a collage workshop that aims to give participants the satisfaction of creating something that eulogizes someone or something that is important to them. Participants will use scissors, glue, tape, paper mementos they brought from home, and Kubley’s collection of found paper to create collages that are meant to memorialize a cherished person, pet, or anything else of importance. Participants can start from scratch or can use templates provided by Kubley to create meaningful mementos to take home and cherish.REGISTER HERE

MAGGIE KUBLEY IS a Chicago based artist whose work uses song, video, comedy, slideshow, and solo performance to explore death, grief, femininity, sex, consent, depression, addiction and their various intersections. A child of the conservative Midwest, cornfed a steady diet of late 90’s/early 00’s sexism, Kubley’s work is a razor-sharp reflection of growing up too loud to be the chill girl and too much of a dork to be GRRL POWER.
Influenced by the versatility of Miranda July, the self- portraiture of Cindy Sherman and the provocative performance art of peaches, Kubley uses pop sensibilities to craft dynamic multimedia performance pieces. From the confusing moments of her teen years to the hard-to- swallow truths of her 30’s, Kubley blends humor, song and unexpected imagery to encourage her audiences to embrace the community forged through the acknowledgment of past embarrassments and trauma.
Kubley has performed all over Chicago, notably Chicago’s Steppenwolf garage rep theatre, Chicago Cultural Center, Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, and as a featured performer in Chicago’s legendary Fly Honey Show for the better part of the last decade.
