Free with video submission to #auntsforcamera
An important component of the installation at the New Museum includes a series of nine artist-led tours, which have been organized using AUNTS’ chain-curation model. Tours are led by artists who have been invited by “AUNTSforcamera” artists to create a response to the exhibition in the form of a tour, which will be performed exclusively for participating audiences. In keeping with the spirit of AUNTS, the currency of exchange for attending these tours is not monetary. To participate, visitors must provide proof of submission to #auntsforcamera, an interactive work by Karl Scholz included in the “AUNTSforcamera” exhibition. RSVP guidelines below.
