Open Studio From Home:
Madeline Hollander

SAT, May 8, 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! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Madeline Hollander is an artist, dancer, and choreographer. Her work is inspired by everyday patterns of movement that she observes around us. In her video installation, Flatwing, Hollander explores the emergence of silent crickets in Kauai, Hawaii, as populations of chirping crickets decrease due to climate change.

Together, we will think about places where natural conditions might make it difficult to live—like the moon or deep ocean. Then we will create our own design adaptations that would allow us to travel to these new realms!
