Opportunity: Remake/Respond/Repeat Workshop
The Fruitmarket Gallery are offering a free series of workshops in February to 16-25 year olds that will focus on ideas of circular design, upcycling and experimental art.
In this four-week project, you’ll experiment and make new artwork in response to ideas and techniques shown in our current exhibition Another Minimalism: Art After California Light and Space. You’ll work with artist Jake Bee and your peers to explore the creative potential of colour, light, space and materials using a range of everyday objects including lamps, fans and sound recorders then and use them to make experiential art installations and sculpture. Another Minimalism shows artwork that causes profound shifts in our perception by the simplest and most transparent of means – coloured light gels, mist and the deployment of after images. Others use tinted glass, mirror, resins and highly-coloured metals.
These workshops are social and informal, and include making, discussion and collaborative work to experiment and develop ideas leading to the group exhibition at The Fruitmarket Gallery on Saturday 27 (11am–6pm) and Sunday 28 (12–5pm) February 2016.
Workshops take place at The Fruitmarket Gallery, 45 Market Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1DF every Thursday in February from 6-8pm. We can support your travel costs from Edinburgh and the Lothians. Snacks and refreshments are provided.
