Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Turned Visitors into Artists

Complementing the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi exhibition The Creative Act: Performance, Process, Presence, Manarat al Saadiyat hosted a Deconstructing Decollage workshop enabling participants to learn the signature décollage technique of French artist Jacques Villeglé.

The event invited young adults to create eccentric artworks using torn collaged pieces derived from a range of commonplace materials, such as magazines, newspapers, and paints, transform them into an opposite of collage.

The Creative Act’s comprehensive programme of free public events is aimed at encouraging the wider community to engage with the creativity on display, through a wide variety of activities and workshops directly linked to a specific artwork in the exhibition.
