Join New Museum and NYCoRE (New York Collective of Radical Educators) educators in a FREE interactive workshop series that introduces teachers to using contemporary art in the classroom. Participants will focus intensively on the art and artists featured in the New Museum’s current exhibition “NYC 1993: Jet Set, Trash and No Star,” exploring issues of social justice in contemporary art. Participants will also engage in group discussion and have the opportunity to reflect on how to take workshop activities and strategies back into the classroom. This multipart workshop is recommended for teachers interested in strategies and content appropriate for high school–age audiences.
Founded in 1977, the New Museum is located on Bowery at Prince Street and is a leading destination for new art and new ideas. It is Manhattan’s only dedicated contemporary art museum.
