Is it really only three years since the Turner Contemporary opened its doors? Apparently so.
The iconic contemporary art gallery on the Margate seafront is celebrating its third anniversary on Wednesday, April 16, with a host of activities.
Theatre company Pif-Paf takes over the gallery’s outdoor terrace to invite the public to create a giant painting from 1pm until 4pm. The terrace will be transformed into a giant canvas where, using the exploding paint cannon and the mighty distance ladder, visitors will become action painters.
Turner Contemporary’s resident choir the Big Sing will perform a range of songs in the gallery spaces. Exploring themes of physical and emotional landscape, the performance is 20 minutes long and will take place in the North Gallery at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
Sounds Like Art is a new project which aims to explore the connection between art and music, and how one may enhance the other.
The first performance in the series will be a four-part song inspired by the exhibition Making Painting: Helen Frankenthaler and JMW Turner. The free performances will be accompanied by sign language interpreters who will be present throughout.
At 4.30pm a public celebration will be held in the Clore Learning Studio, where tea and birthday cupcakes will be handed out while the Big Sing give their best rendition of happy birthday to the gallery.
