Material Encounters: Activating the Everyday, performance and materials workshop at Tate Modern

Materials and performance workshop by Rita Evans

Activating the Everyday: Material Encounters Tate Modern.

Do you ever wonder about the creative potential of everyday materials? How does performance feature in the process of art-making? To coincide with A Bigger Splash exhibition, this practical two day workshop invites you to engage with and activate a range of everyday materials such as foil, fabric, spices and paper through subtle gestures to explore and rethink your relationship to them and the world around you. Through visits to the exhibition, making sessions, group activities and discussion, you have the opportunity to handle these ideas and materials, culminating in an optional performance. Please bring with you an everyday material you would like to work with. No technical knowledge is required. All levels of ability are welcome.
