About this event

BALTIC Teacher CPD: Pegged Out

Thu 20 Jan 2022 16.30-18.00

Cost: £8.00*

Suitable for those working with KS2 and above

Join artist Richard Bliss and focus on ways to motivate your pupils to create socially engaged art inspired by the current BALTIC exhibition Ad Minoliti: Biosfera Peluche / Biosphere Plush.

The session takes place within the exhibition space in The Feminist School of Painting, an active classroom designed to revaluate the structure of art education and promote accessibility, creativity and curiosity.

"A group of explorers have found themselves in a new world. A world where the familiar set ups of family, work, buildings, transport…have been swept away and biological and physical differences no longer determine who we are or what we do."

This CPD session will explore the ideas of Ad Minoliti through simple peg dolls. The dolls are a mechanism for asking why gender roles exist, why binary systems of social organisation are so strong and help us imagine what a world might be like if we freed ourselves from stereotypes about ability and disability, boys and girls, binary and non binary people.

Pegged Out has been inspired by Ad Minoliti’s exhibition Dollhouse, held in Berlin in 2018 and connects to their exhibition at BALTIC.
