Study Sessions

FRI, Dec 15, 2017
7–9 pm

Location: Floor Three, Hearst Artspace

Study Sessions is an ongoing event series inspired by Fred Moten and Stefano Harney’s notion of study as “what you do with other people.” For each Study Session, an artist, writer, or cultural worker selects a work of art on view in the Whitney’s permanent collection galleries as a departure point for thinking through an urgent question in our contemporary political landscape. Participants are invited to join together in open-ended discussions, and engage with creative practice. Study Sessions may take the form of workshops, listening parties, performances, readings, or film screenings. Past Study Sessions were led by Geo Wyeth, Baseera Khan, and Chinatown Art Brigade. This session is led by Alice Sheppard.

Free with Museum admission during Pay-As-You-Wish Fridays. Pre-register to skip the line.
