Children Curate

Fri Apr 12 @ 10.00 am - Sat Aug 31 @ 5.00 pm

Included with general admission

Anthony Shaw’s impressive collection of art, assembled over the last 45 years, is on long-term loan to York Art Gallery. Anthony believes his collection looks best displayed in domestic spaces, allowing for dialogue between artists. Visitors to his intimate domestic display space are invited to imagine what it is like to live alongside a collection of art.

In this remarkable new display, Anthony invited 28 Year Six children from Burton Green Primary School in York to become Guest Curators and create their own exhibition using his collection. The children also made their own artwork in response as part of a series of workshops led by artist Susan Halls. This imaginative and surprising new work sits alongside the items that inspired their creation.
