A rich calendar of creative workshops and experiences have arrived at Chadstone – The Fashion Capital as it proudly continues its six-year partnership with the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), as the major partner of the Melbourne Winter Masterpieces 2022: The Picasso Century exhibition.
In celebration of the partnership, Chadstone will present bespoke in-centre activations, including free hands-on workshops and creative experiences for all ages across three pop-up spaces.
The Cubist Studio
Slow down, observe the simple beauty of everyday objects and experiment with cubist elements of design. This elevated after-dark experience offers painting, ceramics, and still life digital drawing workshops with some of Melbourne’s top artists, including Alice Oehr and Esther Olsson. Guests are invited to create their own cubist masterpiece; painting works of art onto Robert Gordon plates. The Cubist Studio is located on the Ground Level, in the Luxury Precinct of Chadstone. Online bookings are essential.
Make A Creature
At this luxurious multimedia installation on the Ground Level, outside Mecca Cosmetica, visitors will create their very own digital collage. Inspired by the Surrealist game Exquisite Corpse made famous by Picasso contemporary, artist Remedios Varo and her photo collages, this innovative and experimental approach to creation will appeal to all ages.
The Emerging Artist Space
Craftily curated for the school holidays at Chadstone, young budding artists will be invited to tap into their imagination, exploring portraiture and sculpture at The Emerging Artist Space. Located on the Lower Ground Level, outside Target, children will be encouraged to get creative with FREE art activities on offer throughout the school holidays.
Chadstone’s Centre Manager, Daniel Boyle said, “Since 1960, Chadstone has delivered first-to-market experiences spanning an unparalleled fashion, dining, and entertainment offering. This partnership highlights Chadstone and NGV’s shared values to provide memorable, world-class experiences that celebrate leadership in style, design and innovation.”
“We are proud to be a major partner of the latest NGV Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibition, The Picasso Century, which will see two of Victoria’s premier cultural hubs offering visitors enriching and widely revered experiences at both NGV and Chadstone.”
