POWER KIDS / Geoffrey Farmer's Figure
FREE: To reserve a spot, call us at 416.973.4949.
Offering the gallery as a site for social engagement, artist Geoffrey Farmer has developed a new interactive installation for Tools for Conviviality. Through props, costumes and other materials, Farmer proposes a project that reinterprets Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. BMO Power Kids participants have the chance to activate this work by adding to and transforming a large Giacometti-like sculptural figure over the course of the exhibition. The figure, standing in the light of the Rose Window, will be shaped by children who will attach elements and materials guided by workshops based on the Jewish folklore character of the Golem.
These workshops are designed for children ages 8 – 12 and their younger siblings and adult companions. Parents are expected to join their children in all activities.
