Workshop: Art, Activism, and Public Space

Sunday, July 13, 2014 at 12–2 p.m.
Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor

Martha Bowers, faculty member at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, leads a two-part workshop focusing on the use of performance art for social change. This special class looks at the development of site-specific performance with an emphasis on projects that include activist agendas.

Using various mediums, you will complete short assignments inspired by Ai Weiwei and work toward creating a final hypothetical site project that will be shared for critique during the Sunday session.

Saturday, July 12, 11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Sunday, July 13, 12 p.m.–2 p.m.

Recommended for adventurous adults with some experience in at least one of the following: dance, theater, spoken word, poetry, photography, or visual art. The workshop fee, $35, includes admission to the exhibition Ai Weiwei: According to What?, and lunch on Sunday. Museum Members get a reduced rate of $25. Tickets can be purchased at
