Event Description
Learning Communities in Modern Art and Design

In conjunction with the opening of the People’s Studio: Design, Experiment, Build, a new education space in the Museum, this panel discussion examines three case studies in experimental education that have greatly influenced subsequent generations of learners and educators. Closely tied to the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive, this program offers multiple perspectives on the relationship that artists, architects, and designers have long had with educational techniques.


Presenters include Jennifer Gray, Project Research Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art; Eva Diaz, Associate Professor of History of Art and Design, Pratt Institute; and Wendy Woon, The Edward John Noble Foundation Deputy Director for Education, The Museum of Modern Art. The conversation will be moderated by Ellen Lupton, Curator of Contemporary Design, Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, and Director, Graphic Design MFA Program, Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA); with an introduction by Barry Bergdoll, Curator, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art. Carol Becker, Dean of Faculty and Professor of the Arts, Columbia University School of the Arts, will be a respondent.


Tickets for this program will be available beginning May 12. Tickets ($15; $10 members and corporate members; $5 students, seniors, and staff of other museums) can be purchased online or at the information desk, at the film desk after 4:00 p.m., or at the Education and Research Building reception desk on the day of the program.
