I don't believe in culture ... I believe in encounters. -- Gilles Deleuze

Kirigami Workshop with Curtis Schreier (at Paper Machine)

Saturday March 9th 3 pm

This event will be held in New Orleans at Paper Machine, part of Antenna. Tickets are available here

Yes We Cannibal is currently hosting Swamp Alps, a solo exhibition by Curtis Schreier presenting a speculative 1:12 scale model for ecological adaptive future landscape architecture and geo-engineering alongside a limited edition kirigami poster. Kirigami is a variation of origami that allows folding, cutting, and sometimes the use of glue. In this workshop, participants will receive an overprint copy of the show’s kirigami print, Think Tank. Each participant will cut, fold, and glue the piece to take home, while also sharing space with the artist and learning about his history and career. Copies of the signed and numbered limited edition (50) screen print will be available for purchase at a reduced rate. The workshop will last approximately 90 minutes and has no prerequisites or other requirements. $50. This event is being organized as a fundraiser for the Swamp Alps exhibition, but No one will be turned away for lack of funds.



Curtis Schreier (1944 –) is an architect and artist. He was a designer in the practice of Lawrence Halperin, landscape architect and early proponent of urban redevelopment. From the late 1960s, he was a core member of South Coast Pneumads, an experimental design and architecture group, and later of TVTV (or Top Value-Television) an early video journalism and documentary collective.

He is perhaps best known for his work with Ant Farm, a radical architecture, design, performance, and media art group, developing the visionary ideation and graphic design for some of the group’s best-known projects, including Media Burn, Dolphin Embassy, Truckstop Network, The Inflatocookbook, and Real City(c).

Curtis lives in San Francisco.


Yes We Cannibal is the name for both the collaborative art practices of Mat Keel and Liz Lessner as well as a project space for new art and thought, which they founded in 2020 in Baton Rouge, LA. The space offers a free home for experimentation in art, music, and other media, including paper/print and vinyl/sound media.
