A Short Course on Resistance
presented by Art Comments

3–4 PM

A Short Course on Resistance is an affirmative gesture to create a field of intertextuality that examines notions of resistance and education by recontextualizing the book club as a segment of an exhibition, inclusive of text, authors, contemporary art and philosophy. Curated by Peter Duhon, writer, educator and director of the contemporary art blog Art Comments.

Spooky Booky Day at ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1

3 PM, 4 PM and 5 PM · Bookstore

ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 invites you and your little ones to join us for Spooky Booky Day, with readings by Andrea Bartunek (in costume) of one of our favorite children's books, Ghost Knigi by Benjamin Sommerhalder. This adorable, limited-edition book written and illustrated by the editor of the super-cool publisher, Nieves, follows a young ghost named Knigi on his quest to learn to read. Readers will not be able to decide which is more endearing: the story--of the ghost's frustrations when his first book will not reveal its secrets, and later his wonder when "A miraculous explosion of colors and shapes leapt out from the pages!"; or Sommerhalder's spot-on illustrations, which are clear, humorous and true in the manner of a modern-day Leo Lionni or Bruno Munari. Perfect for ages 2-7, and all young-at-heart!   

 This participatory event is free and open to the public, and we invite you to join us to discuss Claire Bishop's Artificial Hells: Participatory Art and the Politics of Spectatorship. Please email info@artcomments.com for more information. 

 


Sunday Sessions is made possible by MoMA's Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
