(Ages: 10 and up)
This Art Collector Set is intended to walk you through the Walker Art Center exhibition Hélio Oiticica and Rirkrit Tiravanija: Contact, which features a multi-media, immersive room installation by Brazilian artist Oiticica as well as a large installation work and several smaller pieces by Thai artist Tiravanija. Neither of these works has been on view before so this exhibition marks their Walker debut!
Each artist aims to foster a unique and interactive relationship with the viewer, drawing him/her in by creating work that engages multiple senses and invites participation as well as interaction between participants.
This Set includes images of each work in the exhibition, correlating texts when available, the occassional conversation starter, and audio and video clips to enhance your experience of the individual works and overarching themes present in the exhibition's organization. You can use this Set as a preview before coming to the Walker to view the exhibition, or if you're a teacher you can present it in the classroom as a lesson.
If you're interested in bringing your class to see Contact and would like to experience the exhibition with a trained tour guide, please visit http://learn.walkerart.org/tour.wac to learn how to schedule a tour.
