Front and Back: Using Double-Sided Artworks to Tell a Story

Participants will take a deeper look into the exhibition Carlo Zinelli (1916–1974), paying special attention to his double-sided paintings. After exploring select works in the galleries, families will create their own double-sided visual stories in the studio, using mixed media and collage techniques.
