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.
The schedule of activities:
02.09 BAMBOO LUXURY
This workshop is the last chance to interact with LUXUS group’s output. For four months, the shelter housing the Contemporary Museum has been the warehouse for various forms of luxury. From the ground floor up to the fifth floor there climbs a huge installation made among others of bamboo shoots. During our meeting we will investigate it and then make our own luxurious bamboo installation, to fill up the shelter’s first floor space.
We encourage you to bring some “luxurious goods” with you, that is unnecessary items to be used as materials for building our installation.
08.09 PERFORMANCES IN THE CHANGING WORLD
The topic of our meeting is performance art. At the ground floor of the Contemporary Museum you can currently see the “Art In The Changing World – Puławy 1966” exhibition. One of events that took place during the symposium in Puławy in 1966 was a performance consisting of an official offering of the Nitrogen Plant to its executives. Relating to this tradition, the contemporary artist, Oskar Dawicki, offered the bunker to the Museum’s executives. Is the Museum building a good present? We will find it out during our classes, which will include our own solemn offering of the shelter.
15.09 YOUR DAY IS TOO SHORT
The new “The Day Is Too Short” exhibition relates inter alia to art as one’s own personal document. By means of different media and techniques the participating artists document their experiences and reflections. A short film, a snapshot, a drawing or an ad hoc comics hastily drawn on the margin, immortalise fugitive feelings. During our classes we will also try to record the escaping reality in the comics form.
22.09 A DIARY FOUND IN THE MUSEUM
A museum can be associated with a place which houses different souvenirs from the past. However how does the idea of the Contemporary Museum – focused on the present and the future – relate to it? During our workshop we will explore what are artistic diaries and memoirs. Are artists bound by the annalistic accuracy? Documented memories become new works, art is thus a mix of memory and imagination. During our workshop we will consider the proportions of this mixture.
This workshop will investigate autobiographical side of art. Is a non-autobiographic art, completely detached from the artist’s life and personality, possible at all? At the exhibition “The Day Is Too Short” Cecylia Malik presents series of her photos taken against the background of a changing environment. We will also make some unusual photo portraits, using some interesting spatial contexts.
All the workshops are free, but please register via: firstname.lastname@example.org
