Organized in conjunction with Caroline Woolard, Peer Learning Group is a group-directed learning program, connecting individuals to each other while providing access to MoMA’s resources after Museum hours. In the winter/spring 2013, three peer-to-peer learning groups will be created and organized based on mutual interests. Through an application process, individuals will select a topic of focus (process, authorship, or economies) and provide supplemental information for other interested applicants. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by other applicants to create clusters of mutual interest. Over eight sessions, each group will direct their learning experience of the selected topic—from gallery experiences, reading, discussions, to off-site trips. Each group will have a facilitator serving as a liaison to MoMA and coordinating each session experience. This “class” is meant to be self-directed and peer driven.
Artists Experiment is an initiative in the Department of Education that brings contemporary artists into dialogue with MoMA educators to develop innovative and experimental approaches to public engagement.
The artists who participated in past years of Artists Experiment are:
