What is Contemporary Art? Memory

Saturday, Feb 25, 2023

10 a.m.


Teacher Institutes during the school year are free and include museum admission. Space is limited and an application is required.


Contemporary artists like Kevin Beasley, Alfredo Jaar, and Susan Philipsz explore memory in their work, wrestling with complex topics such as the veracity of history, the nature of interpretation, and the ways in which objects, images, and sounds from the past embody cultural memory. Using these practices as guides, this webinar will model thematic, inquiry-driven processes and visual thinking strategies to incorporate in your classroom.
