AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO MAKE, CREATE AND DRAW, USING INSPIRATION DRAWN FROM BRIGHTON PHOTO BIENNIAL
An exciting opportunity for children and families to create artworks in response to Brighton Photo Biennial exhibitions. Set in Lighthouse, alongside Trevor Paglen’s inspiring exhibition Geographies of Seeing, workshops give young people a chance to explore the exhibitions of BPB12.
Working with an artist, the workshop will be a chance to make artworks and get creative, using a number of techniques including collage, drawing, photography and cameraless photography.
This workshop is aimed at children seven years and older and their families, including younger siblings.
Workshops accompany the exhibition Geographies of Seeing by Trevor Paglen, which is showing at Lighthouse as part of Brighton Photo Biennial 2012.
A parent or guardian must accompany children at all times, no children can be left alone at the workshop.
About Brighton Photo Biennial
Geographies of Seeing is part of Brighton Photo Biennial 2012. This year the Biennial brings a host of emerging and internationally acclaimed photographers and artists to the city. It is curated and produced by Photoworks, the UK’s leading visual arts agency for photography. It features work by Edmund Clark, Omer Fast, Julian Germain, Jason Larkin, Corinne Silva, Thomson and Craighead and more.
Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 examines a wide range of photographic practices and will reflect on The Politics of Space. It looks at how space is constructed, controlled and contested, how photography is implicated in these processes, and the tensions and possibilities this dialogue involves. It provides a critical space to think about relationships between the political occupation of physical sites and the production and dissemination of images.
Responding to recent efforts to politically re-imagine urban space through social and civic uses, Brighton Photo Biennial 2012 presents photography and imagery generated by professional photographers and the public at large; grassroots activism and media spectacle; established names and recent finds; contemporary work and older photographic practices. At the core of the biennial is a concern with the possibilities of photography as both a tool and a process: a means of understanding the world, and an active force in shaping it.
