Corin Hewitt often combines photography, installation, and performance and takes up residence in gallery spaces to realize his work. Hewitt’s Seed Stage installation in the Whitney’s lobby gallery involved materials such as clay, worms, and compost. For this workshop, he teamed up with his mother, Karen Hewitt, a toy designer and educator. Together, the mother-and-son duo explored Alexander Calder’s toy sculptures with families in the exhibition, Alexander Calder: The Paris Years, 1926-1933, and led a hands-on activity exploring toy design, movement, and function.
