Where is the art hiding?
Bratislava City Gallery and Kunsthalle Bratislava present a day camp for children.
Discover what is hidden under the surface of things, works of art or behind closed gallery doors. Find out what it means to be an artist and how life and its depiction in art have changed over the last hundred years. Creation, thinking, experiments, time for rest and play – all this can children experience during the day camp, which started in Bratislava on July 15, 2019.
Bratislava City Gallery in cooperation with Kunsthalle Bratislava has prepared a day camp for children between ages 7 and 13. In the week of July 15–19, 2019, children, together with lecturers of both institutions, will explore artworks presented at art exhibitions of the 20th and 21st centuries. For children there are prepared several creative workshops in the studios of both galleries and other places. At Kunsthalle they will draw inspiration from nature in the background of the exhibition of Lithuanian artist Žilvinas Landsbergas. At Bratislava City Gallery, there is an eye-catching exhibition ‘Years of Disarray 1908–1928. Avant-gardes in Central Europe’ awaiting children. Lecturers have prepared a search game between paintings and a workshop related to the exhibition. They will look into studios of restorers and get acquainted with the technique of artworks’ gilding. During the camp, children will also visit the studios of professional artists in Nova Cvernovka or go on a day trip to Schloshoff chateau in Austria, where a creative programme will be prepared. The camp will be inaugurated on Friday afternoon and will be attended by parents and siblings of the camp participants.
