26 Jun: Take Action! Join Franz Erhard Walther, a contemporary German artist who invites you to engage with both sculpture and the institution in new and moving ways. We will begin with a tour of Call to Action, Walther's first Canadian solo exhibition, followed by the activation of his wearable fabric forms and the chance to design your own imaginative Werksatz (First Work Set).
10 Jul: A Sound Story. In this workshop inspired by Ulla von Brandenburg's film It Has a Golden Sun and an Elderly Grey Moon (2016), we will collaboratively write a theatrical play without dialogue. After a short investigation into the qualities of sound and silence, we will create sound-producing instruments with plastic, metal, wood and re-purposed materials. We will then compose a musical score for our play using our new instruments. A performance of our play will be recorded, available for participants to access digitally, after which participants will take their instruments home.
24 Jul: Wearable Soft Sculptures. Make a fabric sculpture that doubles as a costume! While we activate one of Franz Erhard Walther's interactive works of art, we will learn about flexible art materials and how our imagination and participation can animate minimal sculptures. Each participant will then create a unique soft sculpture that fits them. At the end of the program, we will engage in a performative intervention by wearing our sculptures and parading into the gallery.
14 Aug: All the World's A Stage. Build an environment inspired by Ulla von Brandenburg's elaborate stage-like installations. Participants will use a variety of materials to transform empty wooden boxes into imagined spaces that set the stage for our favourite stories.
28 Aug: All Spelled Out. Experiment with felting techniques and make your own expressive letters using felting techniques inspired by Franz Erhard Walther's Das Neue Alphabet (1990-96). Together, participants will arrange their letters to create a brand new alphabet before taking their letters home.
