"Full of Life" Celebrates U.N. International Day of Older Persons
Dulwich Picture Gallery celebrated U.N. International Day of Older Persons with ‘Full of Life’, a site-specific, collaborative installation both created and curated by older people. The work is currently on display until 5 October 2014 at the Gallery.
In an ambitious project, nearly 100 older people attended outreach sessions at local community centres and residential care facilities and created watercolours and collages inspired by the Gallery’s most recent exhibition ‘Art and Life’. A selection of the work was then curated by a management team of older people and integrated into one large vinyl artwork with guidance from glass artist Binita Walia. The installation is now displayed along the Gallery’s cloister windows creating a dazzling light and colour spectacle.
