Virtual Event

This presentation will focus on the artist Kota Ezawa, who recontextualizes images from art history and popular culture in animated videos, slide projections, light boxes, collages, and works on paper. Focusing on Ezawa's six works in the Albright-Knox's collection, including City of Nature, 2011, and UFO, 2011, we'll discuss the artist's wide-ranging practice and how it can inspire lesson plan development and artmaking.

About the Series

In these free monthly presentations just for educators, we will explore contemporary artists from the Albright-Knox’s collection and public art projects for curriculum inspiration. Join School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz for discussions on how contemporary artists are exploring what it means to be a citizen in the 21st century and how those themes might engage students in virtual and in-person learning. View All Series Dates
