Bērnu & ģimeņu kolāžas darbnīca ISSP Galerijā

Vēl līdz 28. septembrim ISSP Galerijā apskatāma starptautiskās fotogrāfijas platformas Parallel īstenotā sešu jaunu Eiropas mākslinieku izstāde “Savādā ieleja” (Valley of the Strange). Tās autori caur fotogrāfiju pēta laika robežas un to, kā ikdienišķais kļūst īpatnējs. Izstāde aplūko attēlu lomu pagātnes un tagadnes izpratnē, vienlaikus izceļot to, kā fotogrāfija un video ļauj ikdienu saredzēt citā, nepazīstamā gaismā.

Ar bērnu un ģimeņu dienu 21. septembrī ISSP Galerija turpina šī gada vasarā aizsākto iniciatīvu ar laikmetīgo fotogrāfiju iepazīstināt arī pašu jaunāko auditoriju. Radošās darbnīcas apmeklētājiem būs iespēja tuvāk iepazīt aktuālo izstādi un tajā apskatītās tēmas, izmantojot īpaši veidotas darba lapas. Kopīgi diskutējot un daloties ar savām izjūtām par neikdienišķo, dīvaino un pat nedaudz baiso, dalībnieki veidos kolāžas ar nosaukumu “Savādā ieleja”. Izmantojot uz vietas pieejamos materiālus, katram būs iespēja izveidot un paņemt līdzi uz mājām pašam savu izstādes plakātu. Kolāžu darbnīcu vadīs jaunā māksliniece, ISSP Skolas absolvente Adelīna Kalniņa.

Radošajā darbnīcā aicinātas piedalīties ģimenes ar bērniem vecumā no 3 līdz 12 gadiem. Iepriekšēja pieteikšanās nav nepieciešama — interesenti aicināti pievienoties jebkurā laikā no plkst. 12.00 līdz 15.00.
