Art Alive in Tabernacles for Trying Times

Sat, Jun 12, 2021

Join us for Art Alive, a drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience for general audiences that takes place every Saturday. Artist-educator Duneska Michel will be on the floor of the exhibition Carrie Moyer and Sheila Pepe: Tabernacles for Trying Times facilitating discussions of Carrie Moyer's painting, Curtains. Visitors willl also be invited to explore collage techniques to create "freedom portals" that lead to their imagined safe spaces. Art Alive is free with museum admission and open to all ages. Discussions and activities are ongoing, so visitors can join at any time between 12 and 2 pm and stay as long as they like. This program is offered in accordance with the Museum’s safe social-distancing practices.

This Saturday, find us on Floor 4.

About the artist-educator

Duneska Michel is an artist, educator, and community organizer who finds that all of their work is innately tethered. Michel's visual work explores and reimagines nations of connectedness throughout the Caribbean. This excavation continued in their practice as a community organizer, working as the founder of of a collective named Guanabana and as an artist-educator as they consider intersectionality in all aspects of their teaching. Michel has continued their work in collaboration with MAD and a number of institutionss and galleries, including NurtureArt, MoMA PS1, No Longer Empty, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
