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.
