When watching people in a crowd, an activity that I enjoy is to create a story about their lives, what do they do, why are they here, what are the talking about, it makes a memory that connects me to the place and time. I do the same when viewing a piece of history or art. While I enjoy hearing, reading about or learning more from information provided but I also love to create stories and have conversation with those around me.
What was the artist thinking? What is happening in the artwork? Who are the people and what is their story?
The Tate is offering a learning opportunity to challenge visitors. How do you, as an individual, engage with art or how do you, as a institution, assist your visitors?
Participants are encouraged to carry out their own self-experiments in writing, inspired by the art on display, as well as readings ranging from experimental essays to feminist science scholarship.
