Join Profs. Paula Burleigh and Ian Thomas to learn more about the 2022 EL to New York, NY for Contemporary Art. This info session meets on Friday, October 15 @ 12:30 pm in Doane A103 (the classroom next to the Art Galleries).

Dates: May 23-June 4, 2022

Description: Exploring a variety of art institutions in and around New York, NY, students learn about the multiple “art worlds” operating in this international nexus for the making, viewing, reception, and sale of contemporary art. Students visit museums, not-for-profit art spaces, commercial galleries, and artist studios. This EL emphasizes the relationships between art and its display, asking students to consider how context and institutional framing shape art’s meaning. Students meet with curators, museum educators, conservators, and preparators to learn about how exhibitions are a form of history writing. Likewise, students meet with artists to discuss navigating the professional demands of making and exhibiting art in a major urban center.
