In museum education, educators are often taught to pose open-ended questions, allowing for answers that further conversation and understanding. For this project, a selection of works is chosen from MoMA’s collection. Audience members are invited to share their views on each work, but they must observe the rules of the game. Though this project diverges from the format of the children’s game duck, duck, goose, it retains the game’s playful nature and uses the form of childhood games to further an exploration as to what transpires when we talk about art together.
Paula Stuttman (MFA, New York University) is an artist and part-time assistant professor of postwar and contemporary art at the New School of Public Engagement in New York City. She is a lecturer and a Community/Access Educator at MoMA, and is an educator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and The Jewish Museum.
