Summer Art Camps 2022

REMAI MODERN SUMMER ART CAMPS 2022

Calling all creative kids! This summer only, Remai Modern is offering free art camps at the museum, which includes an opportunity to take part in an exhibition by leading international artist Tino Sehgal. Sehgal’s work bridges the gaps between dance, play and art.  

Remai Modern art camps offer innovative, fun activities delivered by professional artists in our inspiring art studio and galleries. Campers build artistic confidence and express their ideas through drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and much more!   

Campers will also spend part of their day playing in one of Remai Modern’s galleries as part of Sehgal’s project. 

Camp spaces are limited and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

About the Artist 

Tino Sehgal is a leading international figure working in the realm of live arts. His acclaimed body of work consists of “constructed situations” — ephemeral art experiences activated through encounters between the museum visitor and the individuals enacting his work. His playful and often unexpected situations have been enacted by museum guards, tour guides, gallerists, dancers and even children. 

Sehgal’s practice challenges the museum and its audiences to reconsider the way art is produced, presented and received. For Sehgal, the live encounter is paramount, with his artworks existing in the realm of affect rather than material objects. He seeks to preserve the integrity of his practice through a basic principle: there are no materials created in association with his work. The enduring impressions of his artwork reside only in the memories of the visitors and the bodies of those enacting them. 

This summer, Remai Modern will mount three works that span the breadth of his practice: Yet untitled, This is Exchange and This Success/This Failure. 

About the Project 

This Success/This Failure continues the artist’s line of thought: what can be done without objects? There are no objects on display in the gallery or used in the creation of the artwork. Working in a safe and supportive environment, the children create their own games and forms of play and their playful creativity becomes the work of art. The results can be chaotic or quiet, even beautiful at times. It is an open form and each iteration is unique.  

In the context of pandemic restrictions and isolation, this project is an exciting exploration of what physical togetherness can mean. How do children work together to transform the museum space? What playful ideas do they develop to pass the time?  

In addition to participating in the exhibition, the summer camps offer innovative, fun activities delivered by professional artists in our inspiring art studio. Campers build artistic confidence and express their ideas through drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and much more!    

Health and safety protocols 

We are happy to offer in-person summer art camps for children in our spacious Cameco Learning Studio and are mindful of keeping everyone safe. Please be aware of the following safety measures that will be observed during camps:  

  • Camp capacity has been capped at 30 campers per camp to support physical distancing.
  • Masks are currently required at Remai Modern until at least April 1. Visit remaimodern/visit prior to camp to review the most up-to-date information.
  • All participants must thoroughly wash their hands before and after every meal/snack. Children will bring their own bagged lunch and snacks and no sharing or exchange will be allowed.
  • All materials will be cleaned and disinfected between uses and no materials will be shared between campers. Each participant will have their own set of supplies for the week.
  • All commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized at least four times a day.
  • Washrooms will be frequently sanitized.
  • Drop-off and pick-up will take place at the private studio entrance.
