This gallery session focuses on works by artists who have appropriated animals’ bodies to explore the possibilities of the animal as material, symbol, or reference point. We’ll discuss how preserved animal tissue can simultaneously speak of the fleeting nature of life, infuse artworks with spiritual forces, and literally capture nature.
Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.
Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.
FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
