Museum's summertime a must-see for families
West Bund Museum is holding a series of activities from July to August — “WBM Summer Time 2020” — which will include art exhibitions, experimental music, children’s workshops and interactive installations.
A travel journal for children aged from 6 to 12, designed by Sophie Cure, turns “The Shape of Time” exhibition of contemporary art on loan from the Pompidou Center, into an art exploration for children.
Through a series of trips, children and their families are shown how artists use lines, shapes, symbols and colors to reflect their concepts and emotions.
Augmented reality helps them explore the stories behind the artworks. The travel journal is in Chinese and English.
On July 25, artist Xu Maomao will show an immersive installation composed of the artist’s signature “tube” elements, especially for the children.
On the evening of August 8, an outdoor shadow play created by the “So What Original” group will break the traditional separation of screens and employ more ordinary items. A musician will also reflect the relationship between music and environment.
