ArtsPeople are working on a new curatorial project for children and families with Fairfield City Museum and Gallery! In a space known for its strong commitment to community engagement, this project will be no different!
In collaboration with artists Keg de Souza and Lucas Abela, both internationally recognised practitioners, ArtsPeople will create a participatory contemporary art experience for children and families. Within an immersive environment, incorporating both visual art and sound, this artwork will inspire engagement from audiences and spark a sense of play.
Keg de Souza works with varied media including inflatable architecture, food, film, mapping and dialogue to explore the politics of space. Her work, Changing Courses has recently been featured at the Art Gallery of NSW for The National 2017: New Australian Art.
Lucas Abela is a musician and sound installation artist. He makes wild and enthralling pinball machines for the audience to engage and interact with. As described by Concrete Playground, they are “a certifiably bonkers piece of interactive art with a strong sense of creative freedom and childlike zeal.”
The project will include a layered program for audience participation and engagement, including facilitated workshops as well as opportunities for drop-in style engagement. Audiences will be invited into the work, to experience the wonder and excitement of making art together.
The exhibition will be presented at Fairfield City Museum and Gallery from April 2018 until the end of July 2018.
