THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
Join artist Paweł Althamer and New Museum staff on Monday Feb 3, for a professional development seminar for high school teachers related to Althamer’s exhibition “The Neighbors,” at the New Museum from February 12 through April 20.
Since the early 1990s, Althamer (b. 1967 Warsaw, Poland) has established a unique artistic practice featuring an expanded approach to sculptural representation and consistently experimental models of social collaboration. Althamer is predominantly known for the figurative sculptures he creates of himself, his family, and various other individuals within his community. Beyond simple portraiture, these sculptures, in addition to the other activities he is involved in, highlight the complex social, political, and psychological networks in which he lives and operates.
9:30 AM Registration
10 AM–12 PM Join artist Paweł Althamer for an interactive artist presentation and discussion with New Museum curators.
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.
