Contemporary Kids
– Controlled Chaos

Celebrate the beauty of everyday objects…with a twist! Add your art to the collaborative chaos in our Creative Studios this July! Start your adventure by picking up your Gallery Explorer and heading into the theatrical world of photographer Jeff Wall. Take a closer look at the works in this exhibition…can you answer the mystery puzzle and spot the hidden secrets in the pictures?
Inspired, head back to the studios to make your three-dimensional sculpture using recycled plastics and string – join forces with other kids and link it into our incredible growing installation.
Still feeling inspired? Then take our creative writing challenge! Pick your favourite photo, let your imagination run wild and share your story with us.
Will you unleash your creative chaos with us this school holidays?
