International LEGO® Brick Art
5 October 2019 – 4 January 2020
Brick by Brick is a brand new touring exhibition of work by international artists, designers and photographers who use LEGO® bricks as their medium. The show includes a range of two and three dimensional work in a variety of scales, from jewellery to sculpture and aims to showcase the wide range of creative approaches that artists take when using this iconic construction brick.
Artists represented include Belfast based artist, David Turner, who is exhibiting a poignant installation of 19 replica firearms, making reference to his childhood spent in Northern Ireland during ‘The Troubles’. Ekow Nimako, based in Toronto, Canada exhibits five works from his Building Black: Mythos series, referencing afrofuturism, mythology and West African proverbs. German artists Michael Feindura and Soren Grochau have collaborated as ‘Eat my Bricks’, using LEGO® Minifigures to create large scale, humorous photographs which often have social and political commentary at their heart.
Other artists represented in the exhibition are: Brazilian photographer Valentino Fialdini, ‘Little Big Art’ (Cardiff based artist/designer Andy Morris), ‘The Little Artists’ (John Cake and Darren Neave), David Hughes, American born artist Janet Curley Cannon, and Samsofy (French photographer Sofiane Samlal).
This family friendly exhibition includes a whole range of opportunities for visitors to get creative with construction bricks and will include a LEGO® wall. Look out too for news of a Family Funday on Saturday 5 October to celebrate the opening of this exciting exhibition. Come along between 10am and 4pm to check out the show and take part in a whole range of LEGO activities.
LEGO® Maze Design Competition
As part of the exhibition, we plan to create an interactive area for children and young people, including two LEGO® mazes which members of the public can play with. We are inviting enthusiasts to design and build prototype mazes in our LEGO® Maze Design Competition.
Entries will be judged and the chosen mazes will be selected for use in the Brick by Brick touring exhibition. 20-21 will provide the base plate and bricks for the construction of the final maze. A professional design company will create the protective case for the maze to go in, the tilt mechanism and the plinth for the case to sit on.
The competition is open to anyone over the age of 8 years.
A label acknowledging the winner will be shown next to the maze.
