Walker Art Gallery, Arts Council Collection

  • Liverpool John Moores University

The Liverpool John Moores Art&Design Masterclass on the subject of curating was held at the city’s Walker Art Gallery and run by the Arts Council Collection.

The day started with an exploration of themes in the gallery’s exhibition Kaleidoscope: Colour and Sequence in 1960s British Art, linked to the idea of what is a curator, who is involved in making an exhibition, and how to make connections between works of art.

In small groups, the young people drafted an exhibition mind map and then created their own responses to Kaleidoscope in the form of a sculpture or collage. Finally, they thought about the themes of their creations and how they might be grouped, then wrote a text panel for each piece of work.
