Open Studio from Home:
Anthony Barboza 

SAT, Jan 16, 2021
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney Educators inspired by works on view! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

This week we will learn about Anthony Barboza, one of the early members of the Kamoinge Workshop, a collective of Black photographers established in New York City in 1963. “Kamoinge” comes from the language of the Kikuyu people of Kenya, meaning “a group of people acting together,” and reflects the founding ideals of the group. To make this accordion-fold artists’ book, Barboza invited each member of the Kamoinge Workshop to contribute one of their photographs.

Join us to learn all about the Kamoinge Workshop and create your own collaborative family portrait!
