Making and Being, Eight Conversations about Art & Pedagogy at Hauser and Wirth January 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

BFAMFAPhD presents Making and Being, a series of conversations that ask: What ways of making and being do we want to experience in art classes? The series places artists and educators in intimate conversation about forms of critique, cooperatives, artist-run spaces, healing, and the death of projects.
