This past Sunday marked the final class day for Teen/Artist Project 2012–2013. We began the day by visiting the Modern’s FOCUS show featuring Barry McGee. Though the artist’s installation had no direct bearing on the day’s project, it was an opportunity for the teen artists to see his work while they had the chance.
The Modern is currently celebrating 10 years in our Tadao Ando building. In conjunction with this celebration, the Anniversary Class has been taking a closer look at the Modern’s collection, focusing on 10 works in 10 days. On the third day of class, artist Kris Pierce guided an in-depth examination of the newly aquired Jenny Holzer piece, Kind of Blue, 2012. Participants researched and selected their own “truisms” and experimented with compostions made only from text.
