WINTER IS COMING!
On 17 and 18 December the Education Department presented a special Winter is Coming! programme: two free workshops, each to be held twice, in which children aged 6 to 10, together with their families, discovered and explored the works of Dineo Seshee Bopape through creative processes involving poetry, words, rhythms and music as well as experimenting with natural materials.
Taking inspiration from the exhibition "Born in the first light of the morning [moswara’marapo]", the poet Fedouà El Attari combined words and natural materials to create new forms of poetry with multisensory features, and the musicians Magatte Dieng and Elena Russo took the children on a magical journey into the tribal sounds, songs and dances at the heart of African traditions.
Saturday, 17 December | 10.45 AM and 3 PM | Parola conCreta: che forma ha la Poesia?
A workshop on words and materials with the poet Fedouà El Attari
Sunday, 18 December | 10.45 AM and 3 PM | CALABASH
A workshop on traditional African music with the musicians Magatte Dieng and Elena Russo
Fedouà El Attari is a poet and cultural curator. With studies in architecture, museum design and installation, she is a curator and cultural promoter of meetings and activities in museums, as well as in educational, socio-urban and editorial settings. She founded the project PoeTerapy: la parola come cura all’ascolto: poetry is an empathetic vehicle of knowledge, participation, indictment and freedom, the voice of people across the world who express, protest and share common ethnic, linguistic and emotional aspirations and symbols.
Magatte Dieng, who was born in Dakar, is a musician and percussionist. He comes from a large family of griots – the storytellers, entertainers, musicians and artists of Senegalese society who still hand down their culture orally. He promotes a number of projects in the world of music and is the founder and artistic director of the Associazione Culturale Tamra. He organises festivals, events, shows, and African percussion and dance courses in clubs and schools in Turin.
Elena Russo is a kora player and artisan luthier. After studying the piano for many years, she devoted herself to the study of African percussion instruments and later to playing the kora, a traditional plucked string instrument of the Mandinka ethnic group, which is mainly played by the griots. Over the years, Elena has acquired a passion for creating her own kore, n’goni and djembe instruments. She holds courses, conducts kora workshops and is a street artist.
EDU SUMMER 2022
Edu Summer 2022 is a month-long project (11 June - 3 July 2022) that involves the artistic duo The Cool Couple, Agnese Sonato, a science communicator, and Roberto Sartor, an expert in didactics and experiential training. They will be working with younger visitors and their families, involving them in activities, workshops, creative projects and camps both inside the museum and in the outdoor spaces and in the surrounding area. Using the languages of art, cinema, dance, music and storytelling, they will take their inspiration from Anicka Yi’s "Metaspore" exhibition on show at Pirelli HangarBicocca until 7 August 2022.
QUI L’ARTE SI METTE IN GIOCO.
Divertiti a trasformare il disegno nella tua opera d’arte.
We asked the artist Alice Ronchi to come up with an idea that would help introduce children to the world of contemporary art and she created six original drawings that could be transformed, completed, and coloured with all the freedom and creativity that children are capable of.
Once a week, for six weeks, we offer you a new subject inspired by the works that have been displayed over the years at Pirelli HangarBicocca: have fun turning them into something completely new and original!
Publish photos of your creation on Instagram using our hashtags #ArtToTheKids and #ArtToThePeople with the tag @pirelli_hangarbicocca: the most stunning and surprising drawings will be posted on the social profiles of Pirelli HangarBicocca.
