We have heaps of innovative and engaging ways for schools to get the most out of our exhibitions this year.
October Half Term 2015
This October half term is full of fantastic creative opportunities for families and young people here at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre. October 24 sees the opening of two amazing exhibitions, Animotion and Memorial Structure, an exhibition by artist Robert Koenig. Our Big Draw event is on the same day where there will be two artist led workshops and the chance to meet artist Robert Koenig. During the week there will be other artist led workshops linked to the Animotion exhibition and Saturday 31 October sees our Pumpkin Madness, Pumpkin Day.
24 October to 9 January
Animotion celebrates animation in all its forms. With a focus on interactivity and pushing new and traditional animation techniques. This exhibition promises to be a colourful and inspiring exhibition for all to enjoy.
Works include time-lapse animation with a giant zoetrope, colourful projections on the inside of a giant Day of the Dead inspired sugar skull, and interactive origami inspired artworks.
The exhibition is partnered with Academy Award winners Aardman Animations and presents an interactive Animate It! zone where visitors will be able to learn about Aardman’s film-making process and experiment with techniques including green-screen, stop-motion and zoetropes.
This fantastic exhibition will be of interest for English, Media, Drama, IT, PSHE and Art curriculum topics.
Memorial Structure an exhibition by artist Robert Koenig
24 October 2015 to 20 February 2016
Artist, Robert Koenig will be making a major new piece of work especially for the church space. The installation will create a space for contemplation, recollection and reminiscence, decorated inside by using differing techniques that Robert has mastered over the past 35 years. Reliefs and sculptural carvings in his distinctive style will tackle themes of migration, loss, discrimination, fear and collective responsibility.
