In this hands-on workshop, you will work with the Battle Pass Collective of artists, performers and educators as you explore the Revolutionary Battle of Brooklyn, which culminated on the Gowanus Creek in 1776. The workshop will connect past to present as we explore conflict, history and memory, searching for new forms for imagery that has become cliche from overuse and manipulation. [continue reading…]

A Way of Thinking: A Workshop on the “Proteus Process”
Sign up now for this Proteus Gowanus workshop located in the MoMA Education Department. Participation is limited to 20. Proteus subscribers pay less! $50 for the three-hour workshop instead of $90. Just use the secret code “Proteus” in the “discount code” box.
In a romp through the Museum of Modern Art, Proteus Gowanus core collaborators Sasha Chavchavadze and Tammy Pittman have designed a game to demonstrate our Protean process so you too can experience the “way of thinking” that results in our interdisciplinary exhibitions.
The workshop demonstrates a knowledge-seeking process in which participants enter into selected topics via a thematically interconnected array of art, artifacts, and books. Gather and create (individually or as a group) a collection of objects that speaks to newways of seeing your subject. You will develop and expand on that theme as you explore MoMA exhibitions. This thematic, process-oriented workshop, developed especially for MoMA, includes working in exhibition galleries, with a focus on curating and creating.
We hope to see you there! Your participation supports our ongoing programs at Proteus Gowanus.
Lock, stock and barrel, the Reanimation Library has moved temporarily to MOMA as part of Print Studio, an interactive space that explores the evolution of artistic practices relating to the medium of print. Be sure to visit Andrew and the Library at MOMA from January 23-March 9. Meanwhile, back at Proteus, in partnership with our Project-In-Residence, The Museum of Matches, we will be launching a new temporary project in the Reanimation space. The Berlin Tunnel Project, opening January 28, will be an installation inspired by a declassified CIA document. Stay tuned for more on this.
