Education Classroom B, mezzanine, The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building
This series of midday conversations, which explores our understanding of language(s) in relation to various mediums, features MoMA educators in conversation with special guests.
Artist Filip Noterdaeme and educator Paula Stuttman explore the role that performance plays in the museum lecture. They will deliver the same talk, but their performances will differ, allowing for an investigation of the ways in which performance can alter meaning in the museum lecture.
Paula Stuttman is an artist and a part-time assistant professor in art history at The New School. She is also a gallery lecturer and educator at MoMA, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and The Jewish Museum.
Filip Noterdaeme is a New York–based artist and the founding director of the Homeless Museum of Art (HOMU), a conceptual art project that seeks to subvert the increasingly impersonal, market-driven art world and expose the sellout of cultural institutions to commerce, cronyism, real estate, and star architects.
Tickets are free, but required, as space is limited. Free tickets can be reserved online or at the lobby information desk and the film desk. Free tickets will also be available at the reception desk of the Education and Research Building, beginning at 11:00 a.m. the day of the program.
Languages of Art: A Noontime Lecture Series is made possible by an endowment established by Agnes Gund and Daniel Shapiro and by the gifts of Alan Kanzer.
Group meets in the Cullman Education and Research Building lobby and proceeds to the Museum galleries.
