About the event

For The Seeing Hands, Schwab has taken inspiration from a number of architectural details found at Collective and twentieth century art & design reference points, specifically The Tactile Workshops book by Italian artist & designer Bruno Munari (1907-98). Munari’s book suggests making a touchable library for children – a collection of materials with different tactile qualities – something that is reflected in Schwab's installation, which encourages children to experiment freely.

MORE INFORMATION

Since opening the Observatory in 2018, Collective has been exploring our site and exhibition programme with local families and groups using loose parts play theory. 

Through trails, play weekends and regular drop-in sessions, we work with artists and groups to create opportunities for creative learning through play.

People of all ages are welcome to drop-in to play, look and gather in the exhibition with facilitated sessions during our regular Friday drop-in Play sessions. Schools, nursery or community groups are welcome to contact Collective to book time to experience the exhibition.

Wednesdays from 10am–11am, are reserved as quiet times to visit the exhibition.
