Alasdair Macintyre: The Adventures of Aecap
11 Jun 2016 - 7 Aug 2016
Children and families took a journey with Aecap, Alasdair Macintyre’s self referential character, as he explored the artistic life.
Brisbane-based artist Alasdair Macintyre creates hand-made miniature theatrical scenarios that are played out by sculpted figurines in the form of highly detailed scenes. He created a new body of work for Hazelhurst with large scale interactive pieces and hands-on activities, where Aecap, Alasdair Macintyre’s self referential character, explored what it meant to be an artist. Kids could ride with Aecap and Impasto aboard the rollicking Splatsmobile, cozy up to the art-huggy monster, step inside the Junior Artist box or become a Young Master.
