Football Practice: Imagining Football Futures

@ High Concept Labs


Opening Sunday, June 27th, from 12PM - 3PM

High Concept Labs Artist in Residence: Kristin McWharter

Join us for this workshop intensive in which participants explore the cultural impact of American football and collectively contribute to a new simulation of the sport. Inspired by the surrealist game Exquisite Corpses and video game sports simulations such as Madden, participants in the workshop discuss the importance of consent, aggression, and competitive drive as they playfully draft new players to join speculative teams that play the game in real time.

Each workshop hosts 6-10 participants and is open to anyone regardless of their knowledge or interest in football. Part performance lecture part interactive imagining, Workshops are 3hrs in duration and take place over zoom. If you are interested in participating and have accommodation requests, please email kristinmcwharter@gmail.com.
