Whitney Teens x Artists:
Dawoud Bey

Tues, May 25, 2021
4 pm

Online, via Zoom

High school students, grades 9–12.

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 talk with artist Dawoud Bey to examine the power of his artwork on view in Dawoud Bey: An American Project. 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.

Free with registration.
