exhibition-workshop for children 

May 2014


curated by Alice Ciresola with Elena Valdrè, Giulia Volontè and Elisa Iuliano

in collaboration with Editions du Dromadaire Publishing

House and Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice).

How do children usually behave during an exhibition? Are they free to fully experience the displayed objects? Are we allowed to touch artists’ books?


These questions led us to conceive an exhibition for children in the form of a workshop. Books were displayed, but children were invited to touch and play with them. 


A ‘book hunt’ was planned instead of a traditional exhibition tour. No explanations, but games and activities aimed to enable them to observe and discover the visual and material features of the books.
