Material Tensions: Craft and Critique

Drawing on the current exhibition Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019, this course explores how artists work with materials and techniques borrowed from craft traditions. We will consider artists who embrace studio crafts like ceramics and weaving, as well as artists who play with ideas about the decorative and domestic through media like beads and glitter.


Crash Courses

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

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.
