POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
DIVERSE CLASSROOM. EXPRESSIVE BODY - ARTICULATED BODY
SCHEDULEWednesday, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The CGAC opens a new arts education programme for the integration of people with special needs. The Diverse Classroom project, run by the cultural manager and educator Adriana Pazos Ottón, proposes contemporary art as a tool for social inclusion and the museum as a space for learning that welcomes differences.
Between January and May 2020, a series of sessions will be held open to groups or people with special needs as well as to the general public, combining guided tours and creative workshops.
The aim is to establish integrating actions that create meeting points between groups and different people capable of contributing knowledge and experiences from multiple perspectives and generating a common physical, conceptual and social space.
We will cover interdisciplinarity in the arts. We will show the works of artists such as Joseph Beuys, Marina Abramović, Bruce Nauman, Pina Bausch or, in the case of Spain, Itziar Okariz, Esther Ferrer and Yolanda Domínguez, among other outstanding figures. We will also refer to the performance aspects of some of the artists who will exhibit at the CGAC in 2020, such as Francesc Torres and Antón Patiño.
The key parts of the proposal are corporal awakening, improvisation and exploration of the expressive possibilities of the space around us and the audiovisual medium.
We will approach performance as living and experimental art. We will create sounds from everyday materials and make use of the moving image. We will understand the articulated body as an expressive material and emotional vehicle. We will work on body language and gestures, and review physical expressions that we make unconsciously on a daily basis to choreograph the experience.
Throughout the year we will repeat the session on different dates:
SESSION I. 5 February
SESSION II. 11 March
SESSION III. 15 April
IV. 20 May
