Educator Workshop: Social Critique through Black Imagery

Thursday, April 18, 2024

April 16: 7–8 pm | April 18: 4:30–6:30 pm

April 16: Online | April 18: Education Studios


In this two-part workshop for educators, presented in partnership with Art21, explore artworks that critique racial injustice.

In the first session, held online, join Art21 for a virtual workshop to consider the work of contemporary artists—such as Hank Willis Thomas, Nick Cave, and Miranda July—who critique the criminal justice system in the United States.

In the second session, held at the Brooklyn Museum, tour Giants: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys and then head to the studio to create your own piece that inspires a call to action. Plus, gather strategies and resources from Brooklyn Museum and Art21 educators to help students engage with this theme.

Free; registration required. Registration for the virtual workshop is available through Art21. Registration for the in-person session is available through the Brooklyn Museum.
