All parents with their children are welcome to join us each Sunday at 1:30 PM. All workshops take one hour and consist of two parts. First, we visit the up-to-date exhibition together and we talk about the works presented there. During the second part of the workshop we take up manual activities that enable everybody to creatively use their awaken sensitivity and imagination.


During the meeting we will pay the first visit to the exhibition titled “Silence of Sounds.” We will try to find out what silence is – is it just a lack of sound? We cannot hear it or touch it, just like we cannot see or touch “nothing.” The workshop will also be an opportunity to think about what silence may look like. In order to find the right representation, we will use the phenomenon of synesthesia.


During the meeting we will visit the “Silence of Sounds” exhibition. It seems that there is more noise than silence there. In contemporary art, paintings, sculptures and installations are not just for looking, but also for listening. We are constantly surrounded by a sea of sounds – some of them add up to form melodies while others are classified as swishes, swooshes or murmurs. There are also many that we are not even able to name. During the workshop we will try to translate swoosh into a visual language and find the right shape for it.


Any language is a system, which means that it must follow certain rules. Thanks to them, we are able to communicate and understand what we are talking about.
For communication to be successful, is it necessary for both the sender and recipient of the message to know the rules of the code? This question also applies to art. In order to understand an artwork, do we need to know the rules used in art, or perhaps in one of its currents, or even just by one artist? Or perhaps we do not need to know anything and the artwork is supposed to be able to communicate its message to us? Who is speaking through art – the artist, curator, educator, or maybe our inner self? While pondering these questions, in the practical part of the meeting we are going to create our own visual language.

24.03.2016 THE POWER OF GREY

Grey is the colour that dominates the “Silence of Sounds” exhibition. Does it symbolise silence? We are going to think together whether “grey life” must be sad and gloomy. In the practical part, we will closely look at the courtyard and use graphics to endow it with a new character and turn it into the setting for an imaginary story.
