Drop in and think about the seemingly strange production of personality charts, constellations, tests, typological ‘mind maps’, traits and diagnoses. What does it mean to be a creative type?
For this vibrant and thought-provoking workshop, you will follow a trail through Tate collection artworks on display at Tate Modern, and explore these ideas in relation to artists and works of art. Returning to our ‘production’ point on Level 5, you will then create your own spectrum of the artistic temperament using a kaleidoscopic mechanism.
This event is programmed by Bethlem Museum of the Mind, a Tate Exchange Associate.
