Exhibitions of Creative Participation at BAMPFA

This Wednesday, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) is opening two exhibitions, both which celebrate the various explorations for creativity.

First up is The Possible, an experimental exhibition where the museum becomes as a site of creative convergence, as visitors will have a chance to take part in engaging directions with an array of visiting artists. In other words, it is an open platform for shared creativity and exploration of various artistic techniques, as this exhibition combines studio, classroom, library, gallery, and stage. The Possible will feature everything from a multisensory library to provide context and inspiration, to galleries reconfigured as a series of workspaces, including as a recording studio to a dye lab. And by collaboration with one another, the public and the guest artists will use the studios to create new work in a public forum, where the finished works will filter into a gallery installation, while building the exhibition over time.

Next up and for the whole family, is Kids Club. It is an opportunity for elementary-school-age kids to create a one-of-a-kind felt rug with fiber artist Ashley Helvey, and play with 100 pounds of clay, creating a sculpture that will be part of an interactive artwork by Charles Long. Also, there will be a art-viewing clubhouse to climb into, created by sculptor Jay Nelson. And of course, there will be an ever-growing display of drawings and sculptures created of fellow visitors, to get inspired to.

The Possible runs until May 25th, while Kids Club runs until December 21st. Both exhibitions are created in hopes to inspire the spirit of experimentation, improvisation and play, by providing opportunities for people to go deeper into familiar and new experiences, and work collaboratively.
