First Saturdays for Families: Playtime Fun, 2018
Join us for Family Day presented in conjunction with the exhibition “Asli Çavuşoğlu: The Place of Stone,” on view at the New Museum from September 18 to January 13, 2019. Interested in the origins and cultural symbolism of specific colors, Çavuşoğlu’s new work explores lapis lazuli, a stone exported primarily from Afghan mines, which has historically been used to create blue pigmentation for frescoes. For her exhibition, Çavuşoğlu has created her own wall panels that trace histories of the color blue across time and place. Inspired by her work and lapis lazuli, families will be invited to make work of their own using shades of blue.
