Join artist Constantina Zavitsanos and New Museum staff on Thursday June 4 for a professional development seminar for high school teachers that will address topics broached during Zavitsanos’s Research & Development artist residency.
Zavitsanos works with sculpture, performance, text, and sound. Her art deals with issues of debt and dependency, and investigates how intimate economies and fugitive relations might transform processes of distribution and exchange. Zavitsanos attended the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program and has exhibited works at Slought Foundation, Philadelphia; Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City; Hessel Museum of Art, CSS Bard, Annandale-on-Hudson; and MoMA P.S.1, Long Island City. She will participate in Arika’s “Episode 7” in Glasgow, Scotland, this spring. “Other Forms of Conviviality,” her essay and performance scores written with Park McArthur, was published in Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory. Zavitsanos lives in New York and teaches at the New School.
