PLAN YOUR VISIT - Discover mythological narratives and stories of migration with new exhibition Land & Sea (2 March - 16 June 2024)

Bundanon

Museum Season | The Polyphonic Sea

8 July – 8 October 2023

These learning experiences are informed by the 2023 Museum season, The Polyphonic Sea, and are connected to the ideas, themes and material practices of the artists and artworks.

Connections to languages spoken and unspoken are explored through the learning experiences. Communication in artmaking also connects the three learning experiences which build from a single word through sounds and phrases to a collective conversation.

Activities for Museum Season: The Polyphonic Sea

 

Spark Ideas (1 hour)

Learners explore and analyse artworks on display in the Art Museum. Consideration is given to the variety of artmaking practices, techniques utilised and colour, form and material themes evident. This art analysis will inform learners about their own artmaking in the connected suite of learning experiences.

 

Listen (2 hours)

Learning Intention: Listening (in the broadest sense of the word, as paying non-judgmental attention to worlds internal & external, real & imaginary, from the heart, etc.,) is fundamental to responding to and making art.

Activity: Learners will access the language(s) they know & use, responding directly to artworks in the museum space. Using drawing and painting techniques, learners will create a text -or symbol-based artwork that explores how meaning & messaging can be obscured, highlighted, revealed, or hidden.

 

Speak (3 hours)

Learning Intention: Art is an invitation to think about how we listen and what we listen to before we speak.

Activity: Learners will consider the sounds, shapes & forms around them to explore, describe & reinvent Bundanon in new ways. Using simple printmaking, stencilling, collage processes and recycled materials, learners interpret Bundanon’s landscape creating large format works. These works may include varied, personal symbolic representations of sound, language, writing and gesture. Learners can choose to resolve their works beyond the frame, transforming towards three dimensional possibilities.

 

Entwine (3 hours)

Learning Intention: Artists listen to their unspoken thoughts and feelings, creating diverse artworks.

Activity: Can air, earth, fire & water be considered as art elements? What can the natural world tell us? How do we communicate in response to, or collaborate with, the natural world as artists?

The ideas of the forest with its unseen mycelium networks inspires this art-making experience. This mixed-media workshop considers ecology as a model for art making. Students create their own woven interpretation of their individual thoughts and feelings of this place. The final piece is a collaborative installation of these works, interweaving the collective experience of being at Bundanon.
