Study Sessions: Geo Wyeth

Fri, Mar 10, 2017  7:30–9 PM

Location: Floor Three, Laurie M. Tisch Education Center, Hearst Artspace

Beginning in the spring of 2017, this ongoing event series is inspired by Fred Moten and Stefano Harney’s notion of study as “what you do with other people.” For each Study Session, an artist, writer, or cultural worker selects an artwork on view in the Whitney’s galleries as a departure point for thinking through an urgent question in our contemporary political landscape. Participants are invited to join together in open-ended discussions, and engage with creative practice. Study Sessions may take the form of workshops, listening parties, performances, readings, or film screenings. The first event in the series is led by Geo Wyeth.

Geo Wyeth works with music, performance, installation, and video. S/he has presented at The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, MoMA PS1 (Greater New York 2016), LA MoCA, The New Museum, New York Live Arts, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Boston ICA, Kate Werble Gallery, La MaMa Theatre, Human Resources, The Pyramid Club, and Joe’s Pub. In 2015/2016, s/he completed a residency at the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten in Amsterdam.
