Visual artists often work in series, weaving their way through threads of thought, method, and inspiration. With engaged study of the series that comprise an artist’s career, the depth and breadth of one’s knowledge and curiosity is enhanced. A Series Conversation takes as its mission the investigation and celebration of series within individual artists’ oeuvres. Each hour-long session probes a specific series within an artist’s solo exhibition on view at the Modern, inviting conversation, reflection, and connections. As the group questions and explores a chosen body of work, it does so with the knowledge and guidance of a specially-trained Modern docent. Over time, participants will become familiar with several series within the exhibition, cultivating a relationship with that artist’s work that will continue to grow.
A Series Conversation takes place at 1 pm the first Sunday of selected months.
