K-12 Workshop: Art, Archives, and Diplomacy
November 23, 10:30am - 2:30pm
Join us for this K-12 Workshop led by Sarah Neel-Smith, Assistant Professor at the Maryland Institute for Contemporary Art, on the fascinating intersection between Art and Diplomacy in historical perspective. Built around the unusual provenance of the Abby Weed Grey Collection, teachers will learn about how such large collections of contemporary and modern art from Turkey, Iran, and India found their way into NYU's collections, and consider the ways the gift of art has been a crucial feature of diplomacy for centuries across the Middle East and the world at large. The workshop will include a tour of the Grey Gallery Exhibit and, while supplies last, participants will receive a free copy of the exhibit catalogue.
