Kidzzcast produces short documentaries from children, for children via a hybrid of online platforms and in-person broadcasts. Dedicated to the world of art from a young artist’s perspective, children interview artists, gallerists, curators, and other creative friends; focusing on cultural events, art shows, and cultural institutions from a child’s point of view. Explore the first two installments below!
Kidzzcast 002: How to Make a Great Exhibition
Get a backstage pass to NYC’s David Zwirner Gallery from a kid’s POV! In this episode, children explore the new book Making a Great Exhibition and discover the many colorful characters involved in making a professional art show —curators, photographers, shippers, museum visitors, and more. Our young artists meet with gallery staff to learn about their roles, ask questions to the book’s author, Doro Globus, as well as create, curate and present their own exhibitions in response.
