NEW MUSEUM | G:Class Professional Development Seminar for Teachers
Thursday June 6, 2013
Join New Museum Associate Curator Jenny Moore and artist Erika Vogt on Thursday June 6, for a professional development seminar for high school teachers related to the exhibition “Erika Vogt: Stranger Debris Roll Roll Roll” (on view in the New Museum’s Lobby Gallery from June 6).
Vogt uses a range of media and techniques in order to explore the mutability of images and objects. Within her installations, she fuses elements of sculpture, drawing, video, and photography to produce multilayered image spaces. Building on her background in experimental filmmaking, Vogt’s visually dense videos combine both still and moving images, digital and analog technologies, and playfully incorporate drawings and objects from her previous projects. “Erika Vogt: Stranger Debris Roll Roll Roll” is curated by Jenny Moore, Associate Curator, and Margot Norton, Assistant Curator.
9:30–10 AM Registration
10 AM–12 PM Exhibition Walkthrough and conversation between Jenny Moore and Erika Vogt
$5 (FREE for NYCORE teachers)
1–3 PM – Join New Museum educators to further explore the concepts introduced in the morning session. Participants will consider the nature of contemporary studio practice and discuss ways that educators can examine the artistic process in their classroom. They will also explore different sources of artistic inspiration, including reading and research.
The New Museum welcomes educators of all disciplines, but this program is geared toward high school teachers. Reservations are honored on a first come, first served basis. Workshop space is limited.
