At least 500 teenagers are expected to take over the Art Gallery of South Australia this Saturday 21 May as a part of Neo Teen Takeover: Free/State.
In a free event for teens aged 13-17, Neo Teen Takeover: Free/State will feature drag icons Haus of Kong, dancers from First Nations Dance Collective, an 11m long drawing experience with the Adelaide Central School of Art, music creation with Carclew, a screening of the Windmill Theatre’s animated series Honey, I’m home!, plus live music, karaoke, badge-making and more.
Neo Ambassador Pearl George said, “Neo is just an exciting place to go where teens can have heaps of fun, meet new people, create, view art, dance, dress up and be yourself.”
We’ve surveyed the C44 team and our top picks for what to do are:
- Collaborative Mark Making with Adelaide Central School of Art: a collaborative tabletop drawing experience in which participants can add their mark to a monumental 11m-long drawing!
- Tote Bag Painting with Mali Isabel: a chance to paint alongside Arabana and Kokatha artist (and 2022 Adelaide Fringe poster artist) Mali Isabel in a workshop about discovering identity and self, explored through vibrant rainbow colours and empowering messaging.
- Honey I’m Home screening with Windmill Theatre: a series by a team of incredible visual artists combining illustration, sculpture and stop-motion animation techniques to create funny and poignant portraits from life in lockdown.
- The Gig Rig with Carclew: record a track in the Gig Rig, an all-terrain, multipurpose mobile studio for recording music, podcasting, live music and DJing!
The event is free for teens aged 13-17 on Saturday 21 May, between 6-8:30pm. Bookings are required. To get more information and register, visit the Art Gallery of SA website.
