Making & Being: Conversations about Art & Pedagogy

BFAMFAPhD presents Making and Being, a series of conversations that ask: What ways of making and being do we want to experience in art classes? The series places artists and educators in intimate conversation about forms of critique, cooperatives, artist-run spaces, healing, and the death of projects. These conversations about art and pedagogy are co-presented by BFAMFAPhD & Pioneer Works, hosted by Hauser & Wirth, and covered by media partners Eyebeam and Bad at Sports.

Events are free and open to the public. RSVP is required.
