Ambassador, Painter, Monster

Pera Kids
Ages 7-9

Are you familiar with the game Rock-Paper-Scissors? If you are, this game is quite similar, with the only difference being the moves and their names. The game features the Ambassador and Painter from our Intersecting Worlds exhibit. The players will determine the sounds and gestures that will characterize the Ambassador, Painter and Monster. As a suggestion, ambassadors can tip their hat, painters can mime painting with a brush, and monsters can raise their hands, holding their fingers like claws. Of course, you are free to come up with your own gestures. Repeat these sounds and gestures for a few times to make sure everyone has learned them. Then, two players count to three and simultaneously make one of the gestures and sounds.

The scoring is like this: ambassador beats artist, artist beats monster and monster beats ambassador. If two players choose the same gesture, the game is tied and neither gets a point. The first player to reach 5 points wins! If there are more than two players, one person can become the judge, or you can play in turns.

Moscow Conceptualists

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.

Baby King

Baby King

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.

This life-size portrait of a girl is a fine example of the British art of portrait painting in the early 18th century. The child is shown posing on a terrace, which is enclosed at the right foreground by the plinth of a pillar; the background is mainly filled with trees and shrubs.
