Kids Vs Art: Wired Open Day 2017
This time we're going to the country!
Kids Vs Art is a podcast series created by Field Theory involving 8 children aged between 6 and 13 years who learn about and critique contemporary art. Kids Vs Art cunningly disrupts our assumptions and pushes the boundaries between artist and audience, expert and critic. How do children perceive contemporary art and what new perspectives can they bring to it?
In Season 2 country kids Monty, Regan, Tilly and Alec give city kids Lola, Finn and Venu (from Season 1) a first hand experience of what it’s like growing up in the rural community of Jugiong, a small village in New South Wales. The kids combine forces to discuss art, culture, interview artists and review performances part of the 2017 Wired Open Day festival and its associated ‘agri(culture)’ project.
