New Museum Experimental Study Program, fall 2019
While the Museum remains closed, we’ll celebrate the 2020 spring season of our Experimental Study Program (ESP) virtually through our Instagram Stories. Head over to our Instagram page (@newmuseum) starting on April 29.
Now in its fourteenth season, this program provides youth with the chance to learn about contemporary art and engage in intimate, critical discussions about culture. This spring, ESP explored different ways in which contemporary artists employ portraiture and figuration, especially through the work of Jordan Casteel and Peter Saul. In a series of Instagram Stories, participants will share insights that they have gained through workshops with Jordan Casteel at the Museum and art-making at home along with weekly discussions with peers to consider how portraiture might be a means to connect during a time of social distancing.
