The Teenager Kit is an aid designed for young people aged 12 to 19 to use in the Olafur Eliasson: Nel tuo tempo, exhibition either on their own or with others.
The Kit is a small illustrated guide that uses concise and accessible language to propose a series of exercises and thoughts designed to allow you to explore Olafur Eliasson’s art and to discover the link between science, architecture and the work of this visionary contemporary artist. The Kit also contains further information on the artworks and a series of creative exercises inspired by the installations and sculptures observed during your tour, which you can do both in the exhibition and at home.
The Teenager Kit has been designed for young art lovers or for teenagers who are simply curious and have never tried visiting an art exhibition on their own, or for those whose only experience of an art exhibition is a school outing. The Kit encourages you to discover art as a personal experience to enjoy on your own or with friends. The guide is designed to be used in the exhibition rooms in Palazzo Strozzi while also allowing you to continue the experience at home.
The Teenager Kit is designed to be used independently in the exhibition rooms in Palazzo Strozzi and is available free of charge:
– the hardcopy version can be picked up at the Palazzo Strozzi ticket office;
– the digital version can be downloaded at home.
The Teenager Kit is a Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi project.
Illustrations and graphic design by Simone Spellucci.
The Kit is a tool which encourages students to visit the exhibition under their own steam but which can also be used to prepare a class visit. Teachers who would like to advise their students to use the kit and who seek further information may write directly to the Education Department.
