Crash Courses

In these intensive, single-session courses, noted experts provide an overview of key topics in modern and contemporary art.

Performance As Sculpture / Sculpture As Performance

Far more than static objects, sculpture today often incorporates movement, sound, video, and even performance. This four-week course offers participants a chance to consider the ways contemporary artists are pushing the boundaries of one of the oldest artistic disciplines, and reworking its most essential subject—the human figure—by using strategies borrowed from the time-based medium of performance.

How to Look

Develop your powers of attentiveness by learning simple tools for observing and describing works of art. Course participants will have special access to the Museum galleries after hours.
