Reactivation - Spring 2021


What does inspiration and collaboration look like in a distanced setting? 

What does a music piece reacting to a physical artwork sound like?

What does an artwork look like in response to a movement piece? 


As we continue to work and adjust to this new digital world Humber Galleries wanted to explore how different disciplines inspire creation in one another while working completely separated. Bringing together a group of multi-disciplinary Humber students to help us we’ve created a new project entitled REACTIVATION.  

REACTIVATION began with reactivating our Permanent Art Collection by activating student collaboration. Taking a handful of collection artworks, we tasked a small group of student creatives to create Musical compositions in direct reaction to these artworks; Focusing in on their initial reaction and creating work based directly on that inspiration. From there these musical pieces were given to a second group of students to react in the same way, only this time in the form of Movement or Dance compositions. This process then repeated for one final group of student creatives to create works in any Visual or Digital artwork field. The result is 12 amazing original works created individually but also as a larger whole from common inspirations.
