Studio 8: Programming for young people at the Irish Museum of Modern Art
PRESS RELEASE - 1 November 2010
The new season of Studio 8 is already up and running at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, providing young people with various ways to connect with all that is happening at the Museum. On Saturday 6 November IMMA mediators Stephen Taylor and Ciara Murray will lead a gallery discussion and workshop based on the exhibition Graphic Studio: 50 Years in Dublin. This exhibition reflects the diversity of printing techniques within the studio and showcases the generations of Irish and international artists who have created artworks in the studio. Studio 8 participants will be introduced to the process of monotyping, a simple but effective form of creating one-off prints and will discuss the characteristics of different printing methods both historically and in the context of the practice of contemporary artists.
Studio 8 is IMMA’s programme for young people aged 15-18 years. It offers young people the opportunity to meet up and explore the Museum and participate in activities relating to IMMA’s exhibitions. The next Studio 8 sessions take place on Saturday 6 November and on Saturday 4 December, from 11.00am – 2.00pm. Booking is requested - please contact Maggie, email: email@example.com or tel: 01 612 9919. Alternatively, just show up at 11.00am on either of the above Saturdays to join the session. The gallery/studio sessions are free with basic materials provided
Studio 8 activities include tours of exhibitions, talks and discussions, art making in different forms and media, and more. All activities are free. Studio 8 is an opportunity for young people with varied interests and all levels of creative experience to get to know IMMA.
