Paper Weaving Designs

Pera Kids
Ages 7-12

  • November 18, 2020 / 13:00

Are we able to recognize the texture of objects without touching them? Can we create designs that give different senses through sight or touch? We weave paper with inspiration from the artist Noor Ali Chagani’s The Hanging Rug made of handmade miniature bricks. We use a weaving technique to create interwoven 3D designs out of colored railroad boards.

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
