SOMA participará en la 1ª edición de la Alternative Art School Fair, en Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, los días 19 y 20 de noviembre.
Como parte de las actividades de la feria, SOMA moderará el panel "Local and International Perspectives" el domingo 20, a partir de las 3:45pm.
Pioneer Works is very pleased to announce the first Alternative Art School Fair featuring a showcase of 50 experimental art schools from around the world that map a growing landscape of innovative educational models.
The AASF programming serves as a point of departure for participants to exchange resources, share missions, and to foster relationships within the community to help elucidate the often-daunting process of starting or attending such a school. As part of the main stage event, Pioneer Works will host a keynote panel discussion on the role of the artist in society and the ways that arts education engages with and defines cultural evolution. The panel–including Carol Becker, Luis Camnitzer, Dorothea Rockburne, Casey Gollan, and Victoria Sobel–spans five generations of wisdom–ages ranging from 20s to 80s–who will look at how art methodology is changing, how it should change, and how alternative art schools can evolve. Among other questions, the public programming will ask what future pathways through arts education might look like, and discuss how to involve regions that have no art schools or lack arts education in their public schools.
