In this final installment of our two-part campfire chat, artist Laurel Nakadate cozies up and talks to the MoMA Teens about growing up in Iowa, the rights of teenagers vs. adults, what her family thinks about her art, and her personal and artistic reaction to the events of 9/11. The whole conversation took place on the floor of her incredible MoMA PS1 exhibition Laurel Nakadate: Only the Lonely, on view through August 8. Stay tuned until the end to see our awesome guitar jam. Like Rick says, “That’s part of the campfire tradition!”
Our free art classes for teens are offered every fall, spring, and summer, and are open to all NYC high school students. More information is available at MoMA.org/momateens. Special thanks to Laurel Nakadate, Rick Moody, Klaus Biesenbach, Eliza Ryan, and the entire MoMA PS1 staff.
