Wide Open School @ Hayward Gallery

Leave a comment

Thanks to Hannah Pool for the heads up on this one – how did I miss the Wide Open School at the Hayward Gallery? Two and a half weeks of artist-led classes, workshops and discussions, many of which were free, have already sped past… but fear not, there’s still plenty more to come before the School closes on 11th July, including Gillian Wearing on ‘the creative state of being’ and ‘being happy’, and two sound workshops with Susan Philipsz.

Fans of contemporary art and artists from/about Africa may be especially interested in the following:

Bouchra Khalili – Do You Speak English? – on language and film
Fri 29th June, 2pm, £10

Romuald Hazoumè – Scrap tales: making art with discarded materials – workshop
Sat 30th June + Sun 1st July, 2pm, free
Tues 3rd July + Weds 4th July, 2pm, free

Wael Shawky – Art and history – discussion
Tues 10th July, 2pm, £10

Pascale Marthine Tayou – From inception to death: the nature and life cycle of artworks – discussion
Tues 10th July, 2pm, £10
Weds 11th July, 2pm, £10

Plus, my pick of the rest:

Isaac Julien with David Harvey – Choreographing Capital
Weds 4th July, 8pm, £10

Limited concessions are available for most events – check the website.
