Celebrating 20 years of the Attenborough Arts Centre: a new exhibition of children’s artwork in response to Night in the Museum: Ryan Gander Curates the Arts Council Collection.
The University of Leicester’s Attenborough Arts Centre is delighted to announce an exhibition of children’s artwork in response to the Night in the Museum: Ryan Gander Curates the Arts Council Collection.
Seeing Blue celebrates the talent of children and young people who regularly use the centre. The exhibition marks the 20th anniversary of the AAC and forms part of a weekend of activities for the Spark Arts Festival 2017.
Curated by the AAC Young Ambassadors, the exhibition will showcase performances, photographs, videos, drawings and creative responses inspired by the Night in the Museum: Ryan Gander Curates the Arts Council exhibition, focusing particularly on the theme of Blue.
Seeing Blue aims to give the same platform to children and young people as the masters of modern art that they are responding to with their work. It highlights the importance and commitment the centre has to empower young people to take an active role in shaping the centre’s programme. We feel honoured to inspire the next generation of artists, curators, performers and creative professionals.
The two-day celebration with be accompanied by a free-drop in musical making workshop run by LoudLearning (http://www.loudlearning.co.uk/), culminating in a performance in the gallery at 2pm to launch the exhibition.
