What is Contemporary Art? Identity and Power

Saturday, Jan 23, 2021

10 a.m.


How can art define, challenge, and question who we are? Contemporary artists, such as Jenny Holzer, Zanele Muholi, and Doris Salcedo, question and investigate intersections of identity and power. 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.

If you are a Bay Area–based teacher, please consider applying for our small group workshop that follows this webinar. Please note that you must be able to attend the 10 a.m. webinar to attend the small group workshop. To keep the conversation interactive, space is limited. You can apply here.
