Art of Identity Project – South Asia

Published on 09 February 2017

Manchester Museum is working with our Year 7 Geography class for the 2016 – 2017 ‘Art of Identity’ project.

The project explores the topic of ‘identity’ leading to the production of professional pieces of artwork displayed in the Museum. This year, the Year 7 class is focusing on creating a cross-schools collaborative piece of artwork examining the identity of South Asia with the chance to work with an artist inspired by this part of the world. 

Outline 

Museum Visit to School (Late Autumn Term, 2016) 

The first session for the class took place at school with Museum staff bringing a selection of South Asian objects that the students were encouraged to examine and discuss during a typical lesson. It formed the introduction to the project and the activity fed directly into the Museum’s consultation process for Capital Redevelopment, therefore students had the chance to influence how the Museum identifies and presents objects within their new gallery.

Class Visit to Museum (Early Spring Term, 2017) 

The second session for the class recently took place at the Museum. During this visit, the students were able to explore the Museum’s existing galleries and worked with the South Asia inspired artist on some ideas for their contribution to the large scale artwork. Students utilised a wide-range of skills from observation, critical thinking and team-working whilst learning about the influence of South Asian culture. 

Artist Visit to School (Late Spring Term – Early Summer Term, 2017)

The final session will involve the South Asia inspired artist coming into school to share and discuss the artwork with the students and encourage them to work on the piece in collaboration. Ideally the class and the artist will aim to produce something together during the session. The artist will then put together the collaborative work done by all of the schools involved to create a final piece.  

Celebratory Event (End of Summer Term, 2017)

To celebrate the achievement of the students involved and to share the work they have done, the Museum will host a Celebration Event for all those involved and their families. This will allow parents, family and friends of the students and teachers at the school to attend a ‘Private View’ of the artwork. Invitations will be sent out to all those students taking part and schools will be able to invite other teachers and governors etc.
