Join artist Jeanine Oleson and New Museum staff on Thursday June 5, for a professional development seminar for high school teachers related to Oleson’s exhibition “Hear, Here” at the New Museum, on view from April 23–July 6.
Jeanine Oleson is an artist whose practice incorporates interdisciplinary uses of photography, performance, film/video, and installation work. Challenging political and social norms through works that bear a distinctive mix of pathos and wit, Oleson engages contemporary societal topics. These include the collective psyche of apocalyptic anxiety, the global ecological crisis, the persistence of spiritual rituals, and alternative methods of addressing the myriad inequities produced by homophobia, racism, and classism.
9:30 AM – Registration
10 AM–12 PM – Join Oleson for an artist presentation and exhibition walk-through.
$5 – payable on the day of the workshop
1 PM – Join New Museum educators to explore the artworks and concepts introduced in the morning session. Through a closer look at the featured exhibition and hands-on workshop, participants will learn dynamic activities for engaging with contemporary art in the classroom.
The New Museum welcomes educators of all disciplines, but this program is geared toward high school teachers. Reservations are honored on a first come, first served basis. Workshop space is limited.
