SELFHOOD: YOUNG PEOPLE LED TOUR OF ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE

21 FEBRUARY / FREE / 11:30AM – 12PM

RSVP

ALL WELCOME

 

Please note: This event is taking place at the The Atkinson, Southport. PR8 1DB.

 

Selfhood is a new young people led photography programme delivered by New Beginnings LGBTQ+ Sefton group and Cultural partners Open Eye Gallery & the Atkinson Gallery.

 

Open Eye Gallery staff and photographers-in-residence, Andy Yates and Liz Wewiora have been working with The Atkinson and young people from Sefton to programme a series of interactive tours, workshops and responsive photography projects both on & off-site. All of these events respond to the current Mapplethorpe ARTIST ROOMS exhibition and the young people involved will take the lead in delivering sessions to other young people and the general public.

 

Initial activities include:

Half term activities 

A young people led tour of Robert Mapplethorpe at the Atkinson on 11.30am – 12pm on Thursday 21 February at the Atkinson Gallery. 

Join young people from the Sefton Youth Voice and New Beginnings group for an alternative tour of the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition. The group will discuss their first interpretations of the artist’s work and how the topics raised in this work still relate to issues around gender, identity and self-expression today.

Free Polaroid Portrait Workshop, 1.30 – 3pm on Thursday 21 February at the Atkinson Gallery. 

In response to Robert Mapplethorpe’s self portrait series, the public are invited to join in with the group for a drop in polaroid portrait workshop. The group will guide you through a studio set up portrait including composition and styling and you will be able to take the finished portrait home with you on the day.
