Join us for a family workshop offered in conjunction with the exhibition “Pipilotti Rist: Pixel Forest,” on view at the New Museum through January 15, 2017. Over the past thirty years, Rist has achieved international renown as a pioneer of video art and multimedia installations. Her mesmerizing works wrap viewers in vibrantly colored kaleidoscopic projections that fuse the natural world with technological wonder.
Inspired by the artist’s hypnotic visuals, families will have the opportunity to collaboratively create spectacular stop-motion animations including imaginary backdrops and invented characters.
