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.

 

Morning Session
Free
9:30–10 AM Registration
10 AM–12 PM Exhibition Walkthrough and conversation between Jenny Moore and Erika Vogt

Afternoon Session

RSVP 5.17.13 NYCoRE Monthly Meeting – Parents and Teachers United, We’ll Never be Defeated!

Parents and Teachers United,
We’ll Never be Defeated!

At February’s general meeting, we heard from candidates from the Movement of Rank and File Educators (MORE) on why we need to organize our chapters and take over leadership of the UFT. In March, we heard inspiring words about the power of united communities from Karen Lewis, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union. The political education piece from April’s Member Meeting focused on community organizations. This month educators will hear from parent organizations on how they can support their work and help NYC parent organizations build a fight against the ferocious attacks on public education.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for June, when our third Member Meeting will culminate with a focus on youth/youth-serving groups as part of our look at how our work connects to their efforts.

In addition to our political education piece, there will be more ways to engage in critical discussions around issues affecting education.

Check out the following breakout groups:

  • New Teacher Group
  • No Human Being is Illegal
  • NYCoRE Planbook Organizing
  • Working with Parent Groups

If you are interested in leading a break out-group, joining the member committee, or representing your organization, please e-mail Rosie Frascella at rosie@nycore.org.

Location:
NYU Pless Hall 3rd Floor Lounge
82 Washington Square East
New York, NY
Time:
6:00 to 8:00 PM

There will also be a NYCoRE 101 Session at 5:30 for folks who are new to NYCoRE and who would like to hear more about the organization and ways to plug into it. If you are interested, please RSVP here.
