home school Field Day connects art + education for an afternoon at MoMA PS1’s Sunday Sessions, Feb 4

3 February 2018

The home school Field Day programme is on at New York’s MoMA PS1 on February 4. 

The pop-up art school, facilitated by Victoria Anne Reis and manuel arturo abreu, based in Portland, Oregon, will present a multimedia curriculum of talks, exhibitions, poetry, physical education, and more, in order to create “welcoming contexts for critical engagement with contemporary art.” Applying the concept of a school field trip to the programme, the event references the MoMA PS1 building’s history as a neighborhood public school, offering opportunities “to question and reimagine the methods, purposes, and dynamics that connect art and education.”

The day, running from 2pm to 6pm, will include a radio show broadcast by Diamond Stingily via Know Wave, a screening of audiovisual work created by and for the African diaspora, an artist talk by The Black School, as well as performances by RAFiA, Abdu Ali, and Fuck U Pay Us, among other things. 

See the MoMA PS1 website for details.**
