Worktable for Children
September 16 at 12:00pm
$15 – $29
“Worktable is an enlightening and active meditation on the endless artistic cycle of tearing down and rebuilding.” Stephen Eckert, Contemporary Performance
This work able is special. In it, we invite you to take apart objects. They are objects that you find in everyday life, but today they will be at your disposal, ready to be worked on by you. Prepared with safety gloves and various kinds of tools, you can use all your strength or all your delicacy to, for example, take apart the various parts of an umbrella or a toy.
Nothing in this living exhibit can remain intact! But do not think that we are here just to dismantle, because each piece will gain a new life. After this first part, you will receive a set of instructions to move you to other actions and new developments.
Visitors choose a start time when purchasing tickets: slots are available every 15 minutes between hours of operation. There are three spots available per time slot. Visitors should arrive fifteen minutes before their time slot. For our regular hours, check out Worktable.
