Art in a Suitcase
A TOURING EXHIBITION | THE ELAINE AND JIM WOLFENSOHN GIFT, National Gallery of Australia
In 1988 Jim and Elaine Wolfensohn generously donated funds to enable the National Gallery of Australia to buy museum-quality works of art to tour Australia as part of a unique exhibition program. The National Gallery of Australia has carefully selected the valuable works of art to be both interesting and resilient, so they can be handled and enjoyed by the young and old for many years to come. The touring program involves a series of Art Cases, with a distinctive strong educational function.
NERAM welcomes the Blue Case to Armidale and surrounding areas available to bring to preschools, schools, libraries, and nursing homes between the 12th of October – 9th November 2020.
The Blue Case | Technology
The Blue Case: Technology showcases the works of six contemporary Australian artists and designers. The works focus on function, innovative design and construction and include Lionel Bawden’s lateral pencil constructions to create a multifaceted brain; Matthew Harding’s exquisitely carved, heart-shaped pill box; and Cinnamon Lee’s playful palm light. By employing a wealth of skills and ideas, the artists have created works of art that compel people to explore the objects, and share the experience with one another.
NERAM invites you to book The Blue Case and investigate its contents with our arts educators. With a focus on Object Based Learning, this is a unique opportunity to engage the senses, and encourage group discussion in the comfort of your own learning environment. Furthermore, NERAM is happy to host the program.
