What is Contemporary Art? Place

Saturday, Dec 5, 2020

10 a.m.


The relationship between art and place goes beyond depiction. 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 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. Reach out to us at teachers@sfmoma.org for any questions.
