Artology Remix is a program that teams up teenagers and professionals to create a new genre of multi-artform performance works that reinterpret and reinvent masterpieces of the past. The program is currently not running.
In past programs, Artology has invited young people to attend a 2-part program over the school holidays. Students create a performance that reinterprets an existing masterpiece into a new work that blends theatre, music, video and other art forms. In 2013, we reinterpreted one of the 20th century’s greatest and most influential masterpieces – Picasso’s painting Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, or The Ladies of Avignon. Presented in partnership with the Art Gallery of NSW and the University of Sydney. … See the outcomes.
In 2014, Artology Remix turned its attention to one the most famous stories of all time: Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the classic novel about a scientist who plays God and makes a living creature from body parts. Together, a group of young artists and professional composers, singers, dancers, playwrights, poets, video artists, painters and others created a new and radical performance piece using the ideas sparked by Frankenstein. Presented in partnership with Opera Queensland. …See the outcomes.
One of the guiding principles of Artology Remix is that these young writers, painters and musicians have not come to just do what they already know how to do. They are being gently pushed out of their comfortable habits, guided towards braver, deeper and more experimental versions of their usual music, poetry, drawing or dancing.
