Some links to work from MOMA about art as a form of discourse, experiential learning, research and political activism.
The first link is from Kameelah Janan Rasheed who talks says of her MOMA Agora discussion. ‘The role art plays in transitioning into the future and the content of this future was rigorously discussed during our Agora session. Many of the participants acknowledged the aesthetic importance of art, but could not divorce the this from acknowledging art as a tool to raise awareness, to uncover marginalized histories, and to provide space to imagine other ways the future can unfold.’
And a link to the Agora series from 2016
Active experiential learning is now an important and interesting aspect of museum and gallery provision, now sadly curtailed by CV19.
MOMA do a whole series of expereintial learning based online courses including this one below.
