Caroline Woolard Hosts Discussion Series at Hauser & Wirth

BFAMFAPhD presents Making and Being, a series of conversations that ask: What ways of making and being do we want to experience in art classes? The series places artists and educators in intimate conversation about forms of critique, cooperatives, artist-run spaces, healing, and the death of projects. These conversations about art and pedagogy are co-presented by BFAMFAPhD & Pioneer Works, hosted by Hauser & Wirth, and covered by media partners Eyebeam and Bad at Sports. 

Caroline Woolard, Assistant Professor of Sculpture and one of the founding minds behind BFAMFAPhD, organized the series. Each event is free and open to the public. RSVP is required. For information about the discussions and how to register, visit the gallery site.
