Please join us for a special evening for educators in conjunction with Paweł Althamer’s work Draftsmen’s Congress.
Educators will have the chance to participate in Althamer’s collaborative piece and tour his exhibition “The Neighbors.” Over the course of the show, the blank white space of the New Museum’s Fourth Floor gallery will be transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by Museum visitors and a wide array of invited community organizations. Draftsmen's Congress essentially functions as a message board in which different New York–based groups, associations, and collectives are invited to paint, draw, and write on the gallery walls and floor.
The New Museum welcomes educators of all disciplines, but this program is geared toward high school teachers. Reservations are honored on a first come, first served basis. Space is limited.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 212.219.1222 ×231 with questions or to RSVP.
