 Workshop at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Welcome to the conversation and reflection on our recent workshops at the MET museum. We wanted to continue the ideas generated from our latest workshop on November 17th, 2017.

 

Our theme was "Relationships" and we looked at various works of art to explore this concept. The following list of ideas that were generated from our conversations before and during the event:

   Contrasts and commonalities,Mathematical relationships, human relationships, emotional relationships, Figures interacting, Cultural or personal perspectives, static vs. active, soft vs. hard, flowing vs. tension, organic vs. engineered, organic shapes vs. geometric shapes, multiple perspectives,Yin/Yang concept, manipulated vs. evolved vs. transformed, dark / light, past/future, sacred/profane, material used in relation to cultural context, foreground/background, towards or away (facing), symmetrical/asymmetrical... and so forth.

 

We invite you to comment on what you experienced in the workshop. Here are some questions to use as entry points:

  • Did  this lens of "relationships" illuminate what might otherwise have gone un-noticed?

  • How Maxine Green's philosophy of "wide-awakeness" and aesthetic awareness lend itself to our discoveries in the museum?
