Contemporary Art for Contemporary Kids

Contemporary Art for Contemporary Kids presents a captivating introduction to a selection of projects created by leading contemporary artists especially for children and families.  Through active participation – such as drawing, storytelling and construction – the projects engage children with contemporary cultures and enable them to experience the many ways artists approach their work.

Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Sutee Kunavichayanont, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Arlene TextaQueen and William Yang demonstrate that art can be thought provoking, electrifying, lovable, fantastic, eerie, mischievous, gravity-defying, and more.
