MELLON | PENN | PMA OBJECT-BASED WORKSHOP, "Materiality and Object-Based Approaches in the Work of Jasper Johns"
This workshop will occur as either a virtual and in-person hybrid, or a fully virtual experience, depending on the relevant university and museum health and safety guidelines, which we are continuing to monitor. Please contact Nicole Cook with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop is hosted by the Philadelphia Museum of Art in conjunction with the current special exhibition Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror, a major retrospective organized jointly with the Whitney Museum of American Art. Workshop case studies will include discussions of the body, gender, and sexuality in Johns' work; technical study and conservation perspectives on Johns use of paper and printmaking; and object-based approaches to public-facing interpretation of the exhibition for museum audiences.
