Open Studio for Teens:
Dawoud Bey

FRI, May 7, 2021
4 pm

Online, via Zoom

High school students, grades 9–12

Join us for virtual Open Studio for Teens workshops! Teens are invited to a free artmaking program on Zoom with Whitney educators. Each week, participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art projects inspired by the Whitney's exhibitions and collection. 

Dawoud Bey is recognized as one of the most innovative and influential photographers of his generation. Since the beginning of his career, Bey has used his camera to visualize communities and histories that have largely remained underrepresented or even unseen. Teens will be challenged to create a backdrop and pose for a photographed portrait. These photos will consist of dramatically lit areas, inspired by Bey's style of framing specific areas in his photography.

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
