The current art exhibition at the Turner Contemporary Project Space becomes very interactive as visitors are allowed to participate in several of the works.
The most child friendly and fun is creating original sculptures from broken crokery for Yoko Onos' theme - Mend Piece for Merry England.
Next is a more technical design project by the SOI projects, that allows participants to make items of fruit out of pre-cut templates.
With a bit of patience and with some folding & gluing skills, you can produce your own orange, banana or apple to be left on display or purchased to take home.
Other displays include the £1 shop, Bank of Hell and Michael Lin's decorative wallpaper.
A nice afternoon in on Margate High Street!
I loved my experience at Turner Contemporary! A highly interactive gallery with thought provoking exhibitions. I enjoyed Mondrian & Colour immensely.
The cafe has an excellent selection of drinks and the gift shop is excellent to browse.
This is the 2nd time i have been to the turner contemporary and i have been throughly impressed both times now but for totally different reasons.
The 1st visit was on opening week and so there was a buzz about the place that was pretty infectious, it was all new and the council had put on some special events to promote the launch (etc singers in the opening hall way). It felt like a real positive devlopment for the area.
The most recent visit was triggered really just to nip in and see the Rodin sculpture the kiss that is currently being shown there, but decided to have a quick whizz round and see what else had changed. I was extremely surprised and pleased to see that almost all exhibitions were new and interesting, particularly the video footage of margate in days gone past.
Looking forward to my next visit
