Futurist artists often performed in public, using their paintings and sculptures as theatrical backdrops. During this session, select a passage from numerous Futurist manifestos, then read it aloud in front of a related artwork of your choice. Feel free to discuss your choice and interpretation.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
