Whitney Teens x Artists: Cauleen Smith

Tues, Dec 8, 2020
4 pm

Online, via Zoom

Join Youth Insights Leaders as they talk with artists whose work is currently on view at the Whitney. Teens will ask the artist about their process and inspirations, and the artist will share what it is like to make art today and advice they might have for young artists. Participating teens are invited to add their own perspective to the conversation by sharing their thoughts via chat.   

In this conversation, teens will chat with artist Cauleen Smith, whose work draws on experimental film, non-Western cosmologies, poetry, and science fiction to create works that reflect on memory and Afro-diasporic histories. Smith's first solo show in New York, entitled Cauleen Smith: Mutualities, is currently on view at the Whitney. 

Registration is required—all high school students are welcome.

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.
