Digital Excursion: The Feelings...
The Feelings Were Harder To Dislodge Than I Initially Imagined by Agatha Gothe-Snape – For 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. This artwork explores how art and its ideas are valued and the relationships between the art of today and movements from the early 20th Century through a mixture of performance, images and text. Along the way students are challenged to rethink what might constitute an artwork. The performance of the work is followed by an interactive 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.
Digital Excursions or Virtual Excursions enable teachers to enrich classroom teaching without leaving their school, encountering artists and educators in programs designed to support students to develop their own relationship and responses to contemporary art and art making.
We are currently in a process of redeveloping these programs to launch in 2018.
