Project

The Great Art Quest
October 2009–January 2010

Spacex was one of five UK galleries invited by The Princes Foundation for Children and the Arts to host the Great Art Quest for primary schools in 2009. The project ran alongside Seven year Linework: a solo exhibition by Australian artist Shaun Gladwell. For the Great Art Quest Spacex invited four Exeter primary schools to visit this exhibition and take part in a series of workshops with visual artist Katy Bull and Andy Blackwell, a Storyteller, over a school term. The project was an opportunity for Spacex to welcome teachers and pupils from schools who had not visited the gallery before and to share ideas and practice with the other galleries and museums; The Hunterian Museum & Art Gallery, The Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Whitechapel Gallery.
