A new exhibition has opened at People’s History Museum, with accompanying family friendly workshops on Wednesdays throughout the Summer.

Counter-flow: the movement of cultures from one place to another features work by British/Hungarian born artist Eva Mileusnic, and takes a look at the spread of cultural identities: all part of PHM’s migration programme.  Beginning with her own experiences, Eva takes visitors on a colourful and creative metaphorical journey that looks at the world and the demographic shifts that take place between cultures.

The exhibition’s central point is also called Counter-flow: 100 pairs of ceramic feet each individually and beautifully decorated with intricate details, all telling a different story.   Across the exhibition Eva works in many different materials, using techniques that she develops through her desire to achieve her end vision.

Eva is inviting visitors to explore and tell their own stories by participating in a series of Family Friendly workshops, with two sessions taking place every Wednesday of the school holidays.  Inspired by Eva’s art installation, families will have the opportunity to decorate a pair of plaster cast feet with a design that reflects their own identity or story.  Each session will be led by artist Pauline Wood and an array of materials will be available to use and experiment with including painting, printing, drawing and decal transfer application.

The activity is Family Friendly and designed to be suitable for all ages.  Tickets are FREE for children, with some charges for adults. Please note that pre-registration is required for this event.
