The Museum of Modern Art will host “Seen and Unseen,” a four-part seminar that investigates different strategies artists employ to encourage viewers to notice what could otherwise be overlooked in the oversaturated visual world starting on Monday, November 13 at 2:00 p.m., at The Museum of Modern Art, 4 West 54th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
The seminar will address how modern and postmodern art provide a variety of strategies for honing vision, how looking at art helps us see things more clearly while tuning us in to elements that go beyond the visual and how artists identify or remind us what is absent or removed from our field of vision.
Artists to be discussed include Louise Bourgeois, Max Ernst, Stephen Shore, and Bruce Nauman, among others.
Those interested in “Seen and Unseen” can register here.
