AGSA encourages teen spirit with free event- Neo: Just Move It!
The Art Gallery of South Australia’s dedicated teen program returns this Winter for Neo: Just Move It! On the night of Saturday 20 July, teenagers will have exclusive VIP access to the Gallery, including the major exhibition William Kentridge: That which we do not remember.
As one of only two state galleries in Australia to offer a teen-exclusive program, Neo promises jam-packed evenings of artist-led workshops, live music and entertainment. Teens can try their hand at a number of art practices with local contemporary artists and creatives and can explore the Gallery with their peers.
At Neo: Just Move It! South Australian artists will lead workshops responding to the themes of movement and music in William Kenridge’s work. Multidisciplinary artist James Dodd will create live paintings with his ‘Painting Mill’ – a robotic contraption made from power tools. Teens will also be able to make their own art-producing robot using recycled materials.
Performance artist Meg Wilson will be rallying teen spirit at the Gallery with a sport-mania themed workshop creating banners, cheer-squads and dance performances. Neo go’ers will also have the opportunity to learn the art of DJ’ing with DJ Prospeks’ sound-mixing masterclass set within the William Kentridge exhibition space. In addition to the artist-led workshops, Neo: Just Move It! offers a full line up of live music by teen bands and musicians.
Neo is a FREE event for 13 – 17 year olds.
