What is Contemporary Art? Instagram workshop

Explore Yinka Shonibare CBE’s Creatures of the Mappa Mundi & make a contemporary art postcard with Jill Impey

When: Saturday 15th August 2020, 2-3pm

Where: @MeadowArts on Instagram

Part of Worcester Festival 2020

Contemporary Art is not only visually exciting; it also makes us think. Creatures of the Mappa Mundi by Yinka Shonibare CBE turns the experience of feeling like an outsider into a joyful celebration of what it is to be different.

Artist Jill Impey explains, “In the workshop we will create a postcard artwork, reflecting the themes of the Creatures of the Mappa Mundi project, which was delivered by Meadow Arts and exhibited at Hereford Cathedral, the home of the medieval Mappa Mundi. We will use elements of Yinka Shonibare’s colour, shape, texture, pattern, and his ideas about caring and equality. We will explore words, create a collage background and a creature to place on top, using recycled and easily available materials.”
