Description

Thursday 3 August 11.30am - 1.00pm Good Hair Day, Bad Hair Day

Is it going to a good hair day or a bad hair day? Could it be both?! In this workshop, which focuses on the current exhibition, Bristle: Hair and Hegemony, and led by artist Claire Halpin, children will look at some of the hair portraits, and self-portraits in the exhibition and focusing on artist Niamh McGuinne’s Wilgefortis which uses the idea of exquisite corpse, or exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis) or rotating corpse, is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed, create revolving mash up portraits, hair transplants and body transplants all mixed up.

Workshops are for children aged 5 - 13yrs, and charged at €6 per child, with booking essential.

About Children’s Workshops at Highlanes Gallery

Workshops at the gallery are process-based and explore basic concepts and ideas with children as they are looking. The emphasis is placed on understanding the ideas surrounding the objects. Making objects forms part of that process but is not the only goal of the workshop.

This workshop is presented on the occasion of Bristle: Hair and Hegemony. Consider a visit with all of the family. Book a tour! Read more about the exhibition http://www.highlanes.ie/Activity.aspx?ActivityID=3327


The exhibition continues until 23 September 2017.
