More Details

Welcome to Family Day at Tai Kwun Contemporary! For this event, co-hosted by Tai Kwun Contemporary and Rooftop Institute, “artist-parents” So Wing Po and Law Man Lok (artists who are also parents) will lead brand new family workshops and art tours. The exhibition serves as a springboard for kids and adults to interact, communicate, connect and observe, inspiring each other along the way. This artist-led programme invites any child aged five or older and accompanied by a parent/guardian to participate. We encourage parents and kids alike to join us for Family Day, an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate contemporary art together!

 Double Vision: Parallax Workshop

Close your left eye. Open it. Close your right eye. Open it.

By opening and closing your eyes like this, you experience parallax—the difference in what you see with your left and right eyes. We construct reality based on multiple parallaxes that build up over time. In other words, our understanding of the world is similar to the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

This workshop makes use of slight variations in the two Double Vision exhibition designs that are part of a parallactic guided tour. Come play a game of “truth” as we test the memory of participants.

One becomes two, two become one, and one is not one.

emo gym: Sensory Workshop

Twirl a rope, and your whole body twists and turns along with it.

Hold up a piece of cloth and let it flutter in the air.

This game of physically interacting with objects often feels like opening a surprise package.

The workshop lets the audience experience the exhibition with their bodies, getting everyone moving and energising the senses.
