Art and Practice is a series of discussion-based seminars aimed at creating a space where emerging and experienced artists can explore challenges and possibilities in building and sustaining a creative practice.

Artists Michael Rakowitz and Aaron Hughes have collaborated on Rakowitz’s ongoing project Enemy Kitchen, inviting Iraqi veterans to cook and eat Iraqi dishes together and continue to be in dialog around notions of war and identity as it relates to their work. Their session will explore the ideas of survival in practice.

Artists Experiment is an annual initiative in the Department of Education that brings together contemporary artists in dialogue with MoMA educators to conceptualize ideas for innovative and experimental public interactions.

The current Artists Experiment project, Emily Spivack's An archive of everything worn to MoMA from November 1, 2017, to January 28, 2018, will be on view in the Museum through January 28, 2018. The Department of Education is also collaborating with artist Michael Rakowitz on a forthcoming project.
