Note: The class will meet for an introductory session online on April 13 using the Zoom platform, we’ll immerse ourselves in the NYC art scene Thursday, April 20 – Friday, April 21, with a follow-up online meeting the following week on April 28 (Friday).

In this intensive, participants will delve into the contemporary art scenes of New York City, guided by interdisciplinary, New York-based artist, Sara Stern. At the heart of the intensive will be two full days of gallery and museum-going in NYC. Ahead of the trip, we’ll meet remotely to share current interests and projects, and to focus our list of shows to make the best use of our action-packed two days in the city. After the trip, we’ll return to Zoom to further unpack everything we experienced, in relation to our own practices. As we work through our initial responses to the work we see together, we’ll ask: how mutable are our positions? Expect to experience a huge amount of art—a crash course sampling of conversations unfolding in New York and internationally.
