Impossible Spaces Masterclass

Impossible Spaces Masterclass

This masterclass brings together NGV Curators and experts from La Trobe University’s Art Institute to unpack the complexities of merging the worlds of Escher and nendo.

The two day masterclass will immerse you in the merging the worlds of Escher and nendo, inspiring ideas that will invigorate your teaching in 2019.
Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds is the first major Australian exhibition to feature the extraordinary work of Dutch artist M.C. Escher in dialogue with the work of acclaimed Japanese design studio nendo. This summer blockbuster exhibition creates a visionary and immersive exhibition that seamlessly presents the worlds of both Escher and nendo.
Masterclass participants will gain rare insights into the exhibition development, design and presentation as they hear directly from the creative team at the NGV, onsite. Academics will speak about the challenges of traversing time and translating Escher’s now historic imagined spaces into tangible experiences in the contemporary world. Artist led workshops will extend this immersive experience by challenging participants to experience Escher’s world through hands-on 2-D and 3-D creative production inspired by nendo.

Participants can register for the full 2-day masterclass experience or simply purchase a lecture pass.

The program includes practical artist-led workshops, exclusive guided exhibition access and cross-disciplinary discussion of the NGV’s summer blockbuster Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds.
