Admission: Free to JR:Chronicles ticket holders.
The first workshop involved learning about collage and photomontage artists, whilst also exploring and manipulating copies of images of JR’s portraits to create artworks that expressed their different identities and emotions. During a second workshop, the participants revisited their collages and some brought their own materials to develop the work further. Using professional photographic equipment, everyone enjoyed taking expressive portraits of each other, inspired by JR’s portraits and collaborative approach to creating his work. This exhibition shows all elements of the two-day workshop process.
Saatchi Gallery works in partnership with Accumulate to offer their participants’ connection with arts and culture and their first engagement with the gallery. We deliver tours to provide insight into the artists’ work and a narrative to relate to, and workshops to build new knowledge and skills, and a safe inclusive environment to grow friendships and develop greater confidence and self-esteem.
