Digital Excursion: The Feelings Were Harder To Dislodge Than I Initially Imagined

SECONDARY STUDENTS
The Feelings Were Harder To Dislodge Than I Initially Imagined by Agatha Gothe-Snape is a unique offering to schools inviting students to experience a participatory artwork designed specifically for a remotely connected audience. The performance of the work is followed by discussion with MCA artist educators.

Agatha Gothe-Snape is a young Australian artist whose work has been widely exhibited and is held in a number of public collections including the MCA Collection. Her practice stems from improvisational performance. It draws upon and records interpersonal and spatio-emotional exchanges around art and art contexts.
