Little Miss loves the NGV International and NGV Australia at Fed Square, especially when there are mind-blowing exhibitions especially designed for kids like 'Express Yourself: Romance was Born for Kids' (that finished last month) and the 'Pastello – Draw Act' exhibition which took place this time last year.
The new 'kid on the block' which starts this Saturday 23rd of May is 'Open House: Tromarama for Kids'. Contemporary art collective Tromarama, comprising of three artist friends have built a house inside the gallery and everyone is invited over to play! Inspired by ordinary homes, this house is truly extraordinary because everything inside has come to life!
Tromarama capture the excitement of interacting with new technologies to transform everyday experiences into artworks. In Open House, familiar domestic scenes from the kitchen to the courtyard are embellished with spectacular displays of furnishings and interactive experiences to delight and surprise children as they venture from one room to the next.
Inspired by the interior of a typical Indonesian home, Open House features panoramic screenings of the artists’ stop-motion films and enables visitors to experiment with stop-motion animation through a multimedia app, creating short films that can be shared with friends and family.
