Artist Amy Leung invites you to takeover the gallery as part of our second half-term Family Day!
Join Amy to explore the big ideas behind the impressive work of Jesse Darling, Ghislaine Leung, Rory Pilgrim and Barbara Walker.
Our activities will spread out over the whole building and you can join us at any point from the creative making led by Amy to self-directed activity packs you can activate anywhere in the building. We’ll make materials, install large collaborative pieces and think about ways we can use art to connect us while taking up as much space as possible!
Please note: We'll be using messy materials in Studio 3, if you'd like to take part in activities in this space please wear clothes for mess!
We will be offering a designated quieter, seated area and a self-led activity pack for families and groups who would prefer a more relaxed experience.
We have sensory bags including noise-cancelling headphones and fidgets available to collect from Studio 3 and the Welcome Space for the duration of your visit
A visual access guide designed by Associate Artist Anna Farley available to download prior to your visit and as a hard copy in the Welcome Space.
Amy Leung is a London-based artist working across sculpture, drawing and workshops to explore the articulation and communication of joy. As an arts educator, she is interested in the intersections in which community, craft, objects and cultural identity meet. Material exploration and playing collaboratively are key to her practice, with ideas emerging through making together. Senses and bodies mingle with materials; delighting in the responsive nature of stuff and spaces. Amy has previously worked with schools, families and communities on projects at Camden Art Centre, Firstsite, the Royal Academy, South London Gallery and MK Gallery. She has an MA in Art and Design in Education from the IOE, UCL.
