A CHILDREN'S PERSPECTIVE ON NATIONAL IDENTITY
EXHIBITION BY CHILDREN 1/2-22/3 2020
On Saturday 1st February from 10am-12noon you can meet young students from the art class at Kulturskolen Syddjurs in the nearby town of Rønde. Inspired by our exhibition on national identity, they will present an exhibition with prints on cloth.
Over the winter, ten childrem aged 8-12 years from one of the local Kulturskolen Syddjurs have been working with national identity. From 1st February they will show the results of their work in Kids Corner at Glasmuseet Ebeltoft.
Among others, the children have been working with flags as national symbols and explored the artistic possibilities of flags using various techniques for printing on cloth.
A large collaborative work measuring 2 x 3 m. forms the centre of the exhibition and includes seven large flags made in groups.
The exhibition made by the young srt students will open on Saturday, 1st February at 10am and is open to everyone. Visitors will also be able to have a go at printing themselves.
The children’s exhibition can be seen until 22nd March 2020.
The collaboration with Kulturskolen Syddjurs about national identity is related to the museum’s current focus on this subject in the the exhibition Chinese Whispers, which can be seen until 22nd March as well.
