7-31 July 2015


At this edition of Talleres de Lecer to be held during the month of July, the CGAC offers a varied cast of professionals coming from different specialities. The group trasPediante will explore the museum and its surroundings with the little ones through modern dance. Artist Rebeca Mariño will inspire their creativity by tapping into the relationship between art and nature, while architect Ramón Viéitez will conduct a workshop on sustainable architecture and musician Benjamin Carter will lead a session on the creation of electronic and hip-hop music.
These workshops will give youngsters a chance to make direct contact with professionals from different fields of culture and art, while at the same time, promoting the active knowledge of some of the typical creative processes of our time.


Music workshop
Directed by Benjamin Carter
For children over 13
7-10 July / from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. / 20 places

This workshop on the creation of electronic and hip-hop music will delve deep into the history of both music genres by examining their evolution from their birth to the present day. We will also take a look at the resources offered by the new technologies for the creation of sounds. We will be experimenting with rhythm, sound, silence, intensity, words and even objects and sounds from our surroundings to be used as instruments to make music.
We will use electronic devices like tablets, mobile phones and other wireless devices for composition and group improvisation.

Shaking up the CGAC

Dance Workshop
Directed by trasPediante
For children aged 4-6
14-17 July / from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. / 15 places

This workshop will take place in the different spaces of the CGAC building to be able to get closer to the standpoint of the little ones.
We will take advantage of the creative possibilities of the different museum spaces, which were originally conceived by adults and for adults, to develop creative projects and experiments through dance, body language, games and fun. In short, the idea is to get to know the unique architectural spaces designed by Álvaro Siza Vieira (scales, shapes, uses, light, materials, sound...) and the gardens and ruins of Bonaval Park. We will stroll around these spaces using our imagination and our bodies.

Architecture Workshop
Directed by Ramón Viéitez
For children aged 10-12
21-24 July / from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. / 20 places

Sustainability, social awareness and recycling are all gradually changing our society and the landscape we inhabit. Architecture tends to be more and more efficient and tries to use all the natural, renewable resources at our disposal.
In this workshop we will learn how to work with the exterior volumes of buildings to make the most of design. We will build sustainable museums with different themes and create their contents using recycled object and materials. Ordinary household cardboard boxes will be used for construction, taking advantage of solar energy, the rain and the wind to create architectural structures that don’t rely on fossil fuels.
Once the buildings have been completed, a ‘museum city’ will be planned where we’ll group together the creations of all workshop participants.

Modern Routes
Directed by Rebeca Mariño
For children aged 7-9
28-31 July / from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. / 20 places

In this workshop we’re going to learn about the history of the CGAC; we’ll explore the building’s architecture and examine its exhibits. The notion of shelter, scale games, sounds and the extreme landscapes that are present in the exhibits of Cristian García Bello and Manuel Vilariño will serve as a bridge to work in nearby Bonaval Park.
We will penetrate the gardens to unravel the mysteries and stories that lay hidden there. The earth, the trees, the leaves, the water, the shadows, the hollows and the architectural ruins will be our raw material and serve as the scenario to approach Land Art and other contemporary artistic movements. We’ll examine everything that is geometric, organic, inert, alive, silence and sound in these two complementary spaces that create the art that combines historic heritage with modernity.
We’ll take the museum to nature and nature to the museum.
