What is Contemporary Art? Personal Connections

Saturday, Dec 4, 2021

10 a.m. PST


Free with RSVP.


Artists have long used their work to explore and represent human relationships and emotional connectivity. Links between family, the self, and community are explored in the work of artists like Carrie Mae Weems, Louise Bourgeois, and Theaster Gates. 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.
