As guest curator for this Tuesday Evenings with the Modern program, lauren woods, an artist who participated in Tuesday Evenings in November 2015 and again as part of “Reading Monuments,” a series of panels in October 2018 and March 2019, has invited Mendi + Keith Obadike to present “Recent Work.” 

Mendi + Keith Obadike make music, art, and literature. They have exhibited and performed at the New Museum, New York; Whitechapel Gallery, London; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Their early collaborations were works made for the internet and recorded music. Their current projects include a series of large-scale, public sound artworks. Their honors include a Rockefeller New Media Arts Fellowship, Pick Laudati Award for Digital Art, New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Fiction, and the Louis Comfort Tiffany Biennial Award.

As an onsite program, Tuesday Evenings at the Modern is on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. Being There: Tuesday Evenings with the Modern is a unique and relevant online alternative.

Each presenter has been invited by a past Tuesday Evenings at the Modern participant to give a presentation on a topic of their choice. The slate of talks offers an array of perspectives in a moment when people are anxious to connect, share knowledge, and learn from each other as we strive to improve and expand our understanding of ourselves and the world through the arts.

The Being There: Tuesday Evenings with the Modern format will allow for a live experience, with questions and discussion following each 30-minute presentation. Free registration will be available one week in advance. REGISTER HERE
