Ages: 18+
Meeting point: Flying Saucer, Sharjah

Drawing inspiration from the artworks of Robert Breer, Arnulf Rainer and Yayoi Kusama, which are on view at Sharjah Art Foundation, we invite you to join our upcoming participatory photo walk which is open to passionate photographers who are looking to take a playful and creative approach to their practice using paint and digital tools.

Starting with a tour of the kinetic works in Robert Breer’s Time Flies exhibition, participants will learn how to bring objects, gestures and landscapes to life with phone applications such as Boomerang, GIF generators and Snapchat.

Participants will move on to create paintings on acrylic sheets inspired by Arnulf Rainer’s Overpaintings, using these paintings as filters to capture photos of the landscape of #SAFneighbourhood and then produce their own ‘overpaintings.’

And finally, after touring Enrico David’s Fault Work and Yayoi Kusama’s Dot Obsessions, participants will create a dotted trail through SAF Art Spaces and #SAFneighbourhood using vinyl stickers. Their trail will lead future visitors and passersby into the exhibitions.

This photo walk is part of an ongoing effort to gather a community of photographers and give them the opportunity to experience Sharjah’s art and culture scene whilst learning new photography and visual art techniques.
Transportation will be provided from the meeting place at the Flying Saucer to the other art spaces and back.
