Using material they no longer need, children will set up the playhouse to make it a suitable space for reading, learning and various art activities. Each participant must bring at least one old or unwanted item: a broken chair, pieces of wooden crates, or plastic bottles. All unusable items will be transformed into little treasures.

Art Workshop
Interaction with Oscar Murillo’s Artwork “the Institute of Reconciliation”
In partnership with Silwan Club and the African Community Society 

Friday, January 26th, 2018 l 10:00
Sunday, January 28th, 2018 l 10:00
Location: Silwan Club in Ras el Amoud, Jerusalem 

Colombian artist Oscar Murillo, a contributor to the public program of the “Jerusalem Lives” exhibition, worked with young people from Jerusalem to execute his artwork, "The Institute of Reconciliation", thereby launching the Jerusalem branch of a project he has implemented in several places around the world. The artwork, which consists of a number of black paintings, goes beyond contemplation. The heavy, woven and torn black canvases, painted in black oil, make up sprawling installations that hang on strings or screens or metal. They reflect on the history of labour, trade, society, consumerism, and art. They provide space to view the city from an alternative collaborative perspective.
We will complete what the artist started by inviting the children to interact with the work in novel artistic ways. These black paintings will be a space to create individual art pieces or interpret ideas of re-presenting the artwork.
