Exhibiting artist Karla Knight will join the class for an in-person tour at the Museum of her exhibition Navigator, offering a personal look into her process and influences. This class will take place at The Aldrich and be accompanied by an art-making workshop in The Studio.
"Getting" Contemporary Art is a five-session class series, which includes a visit with exhibiting artist Karla Knight and an off-site excursion, provides a roadmap to central themes and ideas that have influenced artistic practice since the 1960s. Designed to be dynamic, engaging, and thought-provoking, participants will build skills to analyze, interpret, and discuss contemporary art while looking closely at The Aldrich’s current exhibitions. The classes will be held either in-person at The Aldrich or virtually over Zoom. The last class includes an in-person visit to the Brant Foundation in Greenwich, CT. Please check each session to see where it will take place. Participants may sign up for all five classes, or for individual class sessions.
“Getting” Contemporary Art is led by Danielle Ogden, M.A., Ed.M., Museum Specialist, Adult Learning at The Aldrich, and Adjunct Professor at Fairfield University.
