GOMA | Seminar Room | Book Now
Teens aged 13-18 years are invited to join 'Sugar Spin: you, me, art and everything' artist Tony Albert, for a special workshop which will explore his practice through two hands-on activities. Teens will take inspiration from Tony Albert's artwork to construct vintage playing card sculptures and create a self-portrait using stickers collected throughout Tony's career.
Over the past 10 years Tony Albert has achieved extraordinary visibility and much critical acclaim for his visual art practice, which combines text, video, drawing, painting and three-dimensional objects. Examining the legacy of racial and cultural misrepresentation, particularly of Australia's Aboriginal people, Albert has developed a universal language that seeks to rewrite historical mistruths and injustice.
