The relationship between art and place extends beyond the depiction of specific locations. Artists like Olafur Eliasson, Graciela Iturbide, and Julie Mehretu are also driven by the dynamics of where an artwork is made and where it is shown. 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 session encourages educators to think and work like artists, using thematic, inquiry-driven processes and strategies.

A prior iteration of this workshop was delivered in 2020.
