What is Contemporary Art? Materials and Processes

Saturday, Nov 7, 2020

10 a.m.


The work of contemporary artists, such as Janine Antoni, Nick Cave, and Martin Puryear, reflects a dynamic combination of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that challenge traditional boundaries and defy easy definition. 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.
