Preview the Jenny Holzer exhibition in B6: The Robert W. Wilson Building before participating in a public screening and follow-up discussion of PBS’s Art21 episodes featuring the artist.
For educators: MASS MoCA partners with PBS’s Art21 documentary series for an Art and Social Change high school teacher workshop, centered around the work of Jenny Holzer. The workshop particularly focuses on Holzer’s Redaction Paintings on view in Building 6, which feature declassified documents about the Iraq War and enhanced interrogation techniques at Guantanamo Bay. The workshop encourages teachers to consider how they can use the arts to develop learning opportunities for students to consider such questions as the nature of truth, dissemination of information, authority, and narrative.
4pm: Gallery Talk with Amanda Tobin, Education Manager
5pm: Public screening of Jenny Holzer selections from Art21
9am-4pm: Hands-on workshop led by educators from the museum and from Art21
Teachers who spend an additional two hours creating a related lesson plan will be able to earn 10 PDP credits.
Registration is free but space is limited.
Non-visual arts educators are encouraged to attend. Art teachers within a 100-mile radius who register with a non-visual arts colleague will receive a fully-funded (bus included!) field trip to MASS MoCA to participate in an “Examining Truth” tour, featuring the Jenny Holzer exhibition.
Please contact MASS MoCA’s Education Department for more information at 413.664.4481 x8150.
