WMC_e6 第六輯

New media art is more than machine-generated sensory experiences. Our docent workshop series speaks to your curiosity… How did a particular artist conceive their works? What’s the technology research that underscores a work? Why are the operational procedures as important as the work itself?

The WMC_e6 Docent Workshop series takes students to the gallery’s backstage, meet the artists to learn about their creative processes, and eventually to co-write the guided tour together from different angles. Each student will be provided opportunities to deliver docent in the exhibition, to demonstrate their new knowledge by leading intriguing tours for the visitors.

新媒體創作涉及的不單是機器如何提供新的感官的體驗。WMC_e6 的導賞工作坊發出更多的問題:藝術家的作品是如何構想出來的?過程中的技術研究是如何進行的?常說程序就是作品,這是甚麼意思?這些,又跟新媒體藝術展的原理、歷史脈絡有何關係?請來導賞工作坊,一齊學習研究,刷新我們對藝術和新科技的的想法。

《文字機器創作集第六輯》導賞工作坊將帶領學員走進展覽廳後台,學習作品操作,翻閱創作筆記,更會與藝術家會面分享創作過程,從多面向一同創作展覽導賞。學員其後更有機會於展覽實習,為觀眾傳達藝術家的研究創作理念,提供深度及趣味兼備的導賞團。

 

2018年8月25日開始。Workshop starts 25 August.

Pilot Education Programme

To open up the “black box” of media art, the WMC is introducing free docent workshops to the public. More than 20 new media art interns will go through a series of new media art foundation and docent skill trainings. They can also exchange ideas will the artists before each exhibition to deepen their understanding to the art-making process. Each participant will be provided opportunities to deliver docent in the exhibition, demonstrating their knowledge acquired in combining elaborated research and artistic interpretation in an intriguing tour.

Furthermore, artists and scholars are invited to discuss their researches and experimentations in public seminars, to openly explore new media art.

However, HKADC $300,000 funding could only afford the three exhibitions rates, promotional and construction costs. The WMC would like to crowd fund $50,000, to invite lecturer and speakers, recruit project coordinator and hire venue.

1.    Docent Workshop
The docent workshop follows the ‘train-the-trainer’ model. The new media art interns will thoroughly acquire the principle and idea of the artworks with a series of new media art introduction, art appreciation, docent skill trainings, and media art operation trainings. In the exhibition, they will act as a bridge in presenting the research and concepts between the audience and the artists. The programme also act as a platform to encourage participants’ sharing with artists, curator and coordinators. By networking the interns with the new media art circle, we hope to establish discussions among the upcoming generation, develop the interest of new media art in the general public.

Interim sharing sessions will also be organised to promote exchanges between interns, artists, curators as well as all participants.

Students from art-related fields and general public interested in new media art are welcomed.

Workshop structure:

  • New Media Art Introduction and Appreciation (2 hours)
  • New Media Art Curating and Operation (2 hours)
  • New Media Art Exhibition Visit and Discussion (2 hours)
  • WMC_e6 Meet-the-Artists session (6 hours)
  • Interim Sharing Sessions

The workshop is offered free of charge. Participant should deliver not less than 3 days of exhibition docents.

2.    Public Seminars 
Three public seminars will be held for each exhibition. In-depth discussion between artists and scholars will address the creative process from behind-the-scene researches to aesthetic experiments, continuing the opening up “black box” conversation.

Free of charge

先導教育計劃

為實踐「打開媒體藝術創作黑盒」的教育抱負,文字機器創作集計劃培訓二十多名展覽實習生,免費提供新媒體藝術理論課堂及導賞技巧培訓,亦通過參加者與藝術家交流,讓他們更透徹的了解藝術創作的構思過程。其後參加者會於展覽實習,向觀眾傳達藝術家的研究創作理念,提供深度及趣味兼備的導賞團。

另一邊廂,每場展覽並設公開講座,邀請藝術家及學者主講,探討展覽、研究與實驗的經過,多角度剖析新媒體藝術。

現時藝發局約港幣三十萬的資助僅足夠支付場地租金、宣傳費用及三個展覽的製作成本。組織希望眾籌港幣$50,000,作為教育計劃的經費,聘請經驗講師、講者、項目統籌及租借活動場地 。

1.    導賞工作坊
導賞工作坊將實行「Train-the-Trainer」的方針,提供一系列藝術理論及導賞技巧課程,讓參加者掌握導賞技巧,同時認識新媒體藝術賞析及作品背後的技術和操作,讓參加者了解藝術家的創作構思和研究結果,並於展覽發揮溝通橋樑的角色,深入淺出地向觀眾介紹新媒體作品背後的研究與原理。計劃亦會提供平台,鼓勵參加者互相交流,與藝術家、策展人及項目統籌分享心得。藉著連結他們成為媒體藝術圈的一員,推動新一代對新媒體創作的討論,拓展公眾對媒體藝術的認識。

展覽中期,組織亦會舉辦分享會,邀請藝術家、項目統籌及參加者出席,交流導賞心得。

計劃歡迎藝術系學生及對新媒體藝術有興趣之公眾。

工作坊課程包括:

  • 新媒體藝術介紹及賞析(兩小時)
  • 新媒體藝術展覽策劃及技術(兩小時)
  • 新媒體藝術展覽參觀及討論(兩小時)
  • 《文字機器創作集第6輯》藝術家交流(六小時)
  • 中期檢討會議 (兩小時)

工作坊費用全免,導賞員需出席不少於三天的展覽導賞實習。​

2.    公開講座
文字機器創作集亦會為三場展覽舉辦公開講座,邀請藝術家及學者參與,延續創作討論。藝術家將剖析從研究至創作的實驗過程,探討作品的理論與科技對創作的影響,開啟展覽背後「打開黑盒」的討論。

費用全免
