Education, Children, Families
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.
4.01.2015 MORE OR LESS SERIOUS ART
During the first workshop in the New Year, we will pay a visit to Tomasz Broda’s exhibition From Roobens to Pikaso, which features unusual replicas of some of the most famous masterpieces.
The display is an example of entering into a dialogue
with tradition, which is what contemporary artists often do. Some of them are dead serious while others wink at old masters and mock their oeuvre. During the workshop we will have a look at various artistic quotes and paraphrases, and in the practical part we will make our own works, mocking tradition
in a creative way.
11.01.2015 DOING WROCŁAW
As part of the workshop, we will pay the first visit to MWW’s new exhibition titled The Germans Did Not Come. It focuses on notions such as emptiness, erasing, memory, presence and absence. Its main subject is the city of Wrocław and its history, made up from thousands of private stories. The city could be likened to a huge jigsaw puzzle, which is what Michael Merkel did in his work. He designed
a special jigsaw using maps of Wrocław from 1695 to 2013. During the workshop we will try to look at our surroundings and dismantle them to see individual constituent elements, and in the practical part we will make our own jigsaw that will present our individual space and story.
18.01.2015 SIGNBOARDS AND TRACES
During the workshop we will look for hidden traces
of old Wrocław in Mira Boczniowicz’s photographs.
The artist registers that which is fleeting, discrete and usually unnoticeable. She takes photos of the traces left by signboards, neon lights, ceiling coffers, fragments of building walls and moulding. Later during the meeting, we will analyse various types
of photography that penetrate the urban tissue.
In the practical part, we will make a signboard-logo that describes us.
25.01.2015 TURN YOURSELF INTO A PIKASO
Tomasz Broda, whose exhibition From Roobens to Pikaso, or Make a Masterpiece Yourself is currently shown at MWW, will introduce the participants in the family workshop to the secrets of his method. He will teach us how to turn everyday objects, such as sponges, socks, tights, flip-flops, trays and cables into true masterpieces. The workshop will be
a unique opportunity to take part in an art history lesson with tongue in cheek, and to turn yourself into an artwork inspired by Pablo Picasso.
All the workshops are free, but please register via: firstname.lastname@example.org
