What is Contemporary Art? Environmental Impacts

Saturday, Jan 22, 2022

10 a.m. PDT


Free with RSVP.

The impact that humans have on the natural world is an ever-present and evolving concern. Artists including Richard Misrach, LaToya Ruby Frazier, and Minerva Cuevas explore the relationships between people and the environment, as well as raise awareness about our role in the climate crisis. Co-presented by SFMOMA and Art21, this workshop is part of a series exploring three different aspects of the question “what is contemporary art.” Each workshop encourages educators to think and work like artists, using thematic, inquiry-driven processes and strategies.

Bay Area educators are encouraged to apply for our small-group workshop that follows the webinar. Apply here; space is limited.
