Workshop / Things in common

Le cose in comune

The works and themes of the current exhibitions become the material with which to build dialogue-based visits and laboratory activities for schools. The young participants are asked to express their own point of view in a continuous dialogue with the artists’ works, the teachers and the mediators of the CCC Strozzina.

 

For classes of middle school
Things in common (guided tour + workshop )

How often do we review and reconstruct our family history using the hundreds of photographs in old albums or the more modern memories in our computers, tablets and smartphones? These myriad posed portraits and furtive snaps organised in chronological order serve to capture the moments and to record the ties binding us to the other members of our family. The faces, expressions and places shown in those pictures have a unique and highly personal meaning for those who know them. Yet sometimes we can forget the importance of certain relationships, and daily routine can cause us to associate the people around us in an almost mechanical fashion either with set times of the day (breakfast, dinner) or with our material needs (pocket money, a new pair of shoes, trousers that need ironing and so on).

Things in Common is a workshop offering participants the opportunity to reflect on the state of our relations with our nearest and dearest. Playing what we might call a surrealist game, participants have to associate their family members with given objects and portray them as those objects in a drawing. Some participants, for instance, may associate their dad with a spanner and their mum with an iron, while their little sister might be a doll.  The resulting family portraits will make up a small album which participants can take home, a personal item which might just get them to think more deeply about the relationships in their family and the role we assign our nearest and dearest.

The aim of the workshop is:

-        to analyse the concept of the family and family bonds through their visual portrayal;

-        to analuse and use a contemporary work of art as our cue for a relational activity;

-        to produce a creative work.

 

Duration 2 hours, € 6.00 per student (ticket to the exhibition included).

Con la grande mostra dedicata ad Ai Weiwei (23 settembre 2016-22 gennaio 2017) per la prima volta Palazzo Strozzi diventa uno spazio espositivo unitario che comprende facciata, Cortile, Piano Nobile e Strozzina.

L’arte contemporanea esce dalla Strozzina e si espande sia a livello espositivo che di comunicazione, in uno scenario in cui Palazzo Strozzi partecipa attivamente all’avanguardia artistica del nostro tempo.

Per questo motivo le informazioni relative alla mostra Ai Weiwei. Libero e il programma di mostre e attività future dedicato all'arte contemporanea saranno consultabili direttamente al sito www.palazzostrozzi.org e sui canali social di Palazzo Strozzi.
