Calling all Instagram users! 

Come and take part in a mass collage installation at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art. We want you to explore how you use hand gestures to define who you are, to communicate, learn and socialise.

Using Instagram, simply capture how you make contact with others using hand gestures. You could show how you build relationships, communicate and interact; how you express your emotions, your dreams and identity; how you learn and play.


How to get involved

  • Capture your chosen gesture(s) using Instagram
  • Tag your Instagram image using #artexhowwelearn
  • Please note: If your Instagram account is private, we won’t be able to access your image. In this case you can email your Instagram image to us at: bpartexchange@tate.org.uk 

We will have 1 week to edit your submissions into the large scale collage of hand gestures. You are invited to come along and see the display at the How We Learn event at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art on Wednesday,8th October 2014 7.00-9.30pm.

The How We Learn project originated from an exhibition held at Belfast Exposed and has been developed by BP Art Exchange for a global audience.
Selected works may also be shown alongside other works from the How we Learn project as part of the BP Art Exchange programme in the Learning Gallery at Tate Modern, London, in Feb 2015.
This event is part of Tate’s new international learning project connecting teachers, artists and cultural institutions through art and ideas. To find out more about BP Art Exchange visit http://www.tate.org.uk/learn/bpartexchange

This event is produced by: Annie Bicknell with UK artists Marysa Dowling and Luca Damiani in collaboration with Garage and Russian artists and educators.
