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.
2.07.2017 THE CITY OF LUKSUS
You can be King Kong too! You can be the maker and the biggest inhabitant of a miniature city! During the workshop we will visit the exhibition “Black Spring. On Wrocław’s Independent Music Scene of the 1980s” and see how the artists of the Luksus group managed to create a scale model of a city made from cardboard and any other material they could lay their hands on. In the practical part we are going to use cartons, paints and everyday objects to build a city of our dreams. Perhaps we will even manage to illuminate and decorate the world around us?
9.07.2017 MAKING PORTRAITS
Can the Nivea cream be used to make a work of art? Perhaps it will come in handy while experimenting with photography? While visiting the exhibition “Gordon Parks: I Use My Camera as a Weapon” we will think what matters when making a portrait and what turns photography into a carrier of history and emotions captured within the frame. In the practical part we will make our own special portraits.
16.07.2017 SHE IN FLOWERS
Volatility, impermanence, disappearing and mystery. During the workshop we will raise issues connected with intangible and elusive objects and philosophise about some rather unobvious and unreal subjects. We will go to Aleksandra Śmigielska’s exhibition “To Touch”, which features photographs that poetically document the relationship with a person who is about to pass away. Visual traps, impressions ,afterimages, the memory of things, states, people – this is what is left each time we part with another human being.
23.07.2017 A JOURNEY / WITH A BOOK FOR LOOKING
“I live with my family in a city close to the sea. Every summer we used to spend many weekends at the beach. But we never go there anymore, because last year our lives changed forever…”
During this Sunday’s workshop we are going to look at some important global affairs through the eyes of a child. We will try to empathize with the hero of Francesco Sanna’s book “The Journey” and discover what it is like to flee from danger. We will talk about what matters most to each of us and how to deal with crises. The meeting will be held in the “Books for Looking” series.
30.07.2017 A LAMP THAT MAKES NOISE
Would you like to make a kettle that gives light or a table out of a radiator? Everything is possible! The workshop will begin by looking for inspiration in readymades. We will pay a visit to the exhibition “Black Spring. On Wrocław’s Independent Music Scene of the 1980s” and look for such objects there. Inspired by different examples of using ordinary objects in an extraordinary way, we will make our own artworks out of little lamps, light bulbs, balloons and anything you could imagine.
