Demo & Discourse: Scott Alario and Marguerite Keyes on Collaboration (Parenting and Art, Intention and Chaos)
3 – 4 pm, Contemporary Art Gallery
Part of Locally Made’s One Room.
In Demo & Discourse, artists, designers, and experts from across disciplines and mediums share examples of their work and talk about process.
We will give a short presentation on our personal art practices, within the context of being artist/parents as well as collaborators, and we will screen a video piece (10 min.) that is made for this event. Also, open it up to discussion afterwards, and we may have a fun take away. — Scott Alario and Marguerite Keyes

Calling herself an artist has helped Marguerite get away with many things. She also uses this title as an excuse to ask important questions and for creating her own solutions. Marguerite likes to tell stories with her artwork. She builds narrative through sculptural installations that range in scale from larger than life to tiny worlds that are best viewed with a magnifying glass. She uses found materials and relics pulled from the cracks of old floors. She has held solo and group exhibitions in Reykjavík, Iceland and across New England. Marguerite received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, and currently lives in Providence with her partner and their daughter.
