WORKSHOPS FOR FAMILIES NEXT STOP! ARGENTINA
Saturdays and Sundays, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m
2020 is going to start off in the CGAC with a new edition of Workshops for Families.The activity is aimed at families with children aged between 4 and 9 who want to discover the wide world of contemporary art or deepen their knowledge.
We will continue our journey around the world inquiring about different cultures and ways of doing things.On this occasion, we will press the stop button in Argentina, where we will get off to explore the work of five artists whose perspectives, interests and artistic resources will give us clues to experiment and create while playing with space, perception and colours, proportion, distortion, atmosphere and sensory illusion.
Combinations.Julio Le Parc
Saturday, 18 January.For families with children aged 4 to 6 years old
Sunday, 19 January.For families with children aged 7 to 9 years old
Registration period: from 7 – 17 January
Artist Julio Le Parc, a global leader in kinetic art, experiments with different materials, encouraging play and participation.Following in the artist’s footsteps, we will work with transparencies, lights, and relationships between colours to introduce us to the world of illusions and visual perception.
On Stage!Marta Minujin
Saturday, 15 FebruaryFor families with children aged 4 to 6 years old
Sunday, 16 February.For families with children aged 7 to 9 years old
Registration period: 3 – 14 February
Known for her colourful and call-for-action works, Marta Minujin plays with the rules, breaking them by giving a new twist to social conventions and trying to find new spaces for art and life.Getting our inspiration from her pop-style paintings and installations, we will create habitable, colourful shelters where we can experiment with the body, light, painting and the creation of new environments.
One Day +.Liliana Porter
Saturday, 14 March.For families with children aged 4 to 6 years old
Sunday, 15 March.For families with children aged 7 to 9 years old
Registration period: 2 – 13 March
Liliana Porter's gaze focuses on everyday life, playing with creating small universes using figurines and objects she has encountered.In her works, reality merges with fiction, giving rise to poetic and theatrical scenarios.In this session, we will start with microelements, our own toys will be the main characters in new adventures and we will experiment with the notions of small and large scales, recreating different situations.
Not Everything Is What It Seems.Leandro Erlich
Saturday, 18 April.For families with children aged 4 to 6 years old
Sunday, 19 April.For families with children aged 7 to 9 years old
Registration period: 6 – 17 April
Leandro Erlich plays with illusions, seeks to challenge our perceptions using images that are surprising and seemingly have no logic.Starting from that duality between what is real and how it is represented, we will write hidden messages, discover the magic of mirrors and create small worlds using unconventional materials and techniques.
With Coverage.Marina de Caro
Saturday, 23 May.For families with children aged 4 to 6 years old
Sunday, 24 May.For families with children aged 7 to 9 years old
Registration period: 11 – 22 May
Marina de Caro's prime interest is reflecting on body expression, colour and design.Working with drawing, installation and performance, the artist uses fabric as her main creative resource, offering different ways to use this material.In this session, we will experiment with our body through music, we will make sculptures and characters with old clothes and create different textile environments.
