This one-day workshop invites participants to work with artist Jer Thorp and writer Emily Spivack to explore the creative process using archives and data sets for artistic production.

This program is presented as part of Artists Experiment, in collaboration with the Office for Creative Research.

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.
