Organized on the occasion of When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South, this special Studio Lab considers curatorial and service-based approaches to artists with cognitive or mental disabilities. The panelists will question the implications of how these artists's works are made, historicized and presented. The program features Tom Di Maria, Director, Creative Growth Art Center; Valérie Rousseau, PhD, curator of Art of the Self-Taught and Art Brut at the American Folk Art Museum and Jacolby Satterwhite, artist and participant in When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South. The conversation will be moderated by Adrienne Edwards, Associate Curator, Performa.

1pm: Gallery Tour: When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South

Enjoy an interactive and informative tour of When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South, an exhibition that queries the category of “outsider” art in relation to contemporary art and black life. Situating itself within current art historical and political debates, the exhibition considers work by self-taught, spiritually inspired and incarcerated artists, alongside other projects based in performance, socially engaged practice and the archive, as well as painting, drawing, sculpture and assemblage, that make insistent reference to place. 

2pm: Hands On: A Family Crest

Artist Henry Ray Clark was a folk artist that developed a characteristic drawing style featuring detailed patterns and line work. Take a look at his work featured in When the Stars Begin to Fall, then explore pattern, shape and line to construct a family crest, a work of art that reflects something special about your family.

1pm: Gallery Tour: Glenn Kaino: 19.83

Enjoy an interactive and informative tour of Glenn Kaino 19.83, Los Angeles-based artist Glenn Kaino debuts two recent artworks; Bridge (2013), a sculpture comprised of several gold painted casts of Tommie Smith's arm and 19.83 (2013), a three-level platform reminiscent of the one used to honor the top competitors at the Olympics. 

2pm: Hands On: Memory, History and Inspiration

Artist Glenn Kaino is continually inspired by American athlete and Olympian, Tommie Smith, with whom he collaborates for the Glenn Kaino: 19.83 installations. How might you create a work of art that reflects a moment in history that inspires you? Join a workshop where participants will create a watercolor painting of an inspirational moment.

At The Studio Museum in Harlem, a new season means new discoveries.

Every Sunday, Sasha and her father come to our free workshops to learn something new about art—and each other. The Studio Museum brings art alive. Here, exhibitions like our current When the Stars Begin to Fall: Imagination and the American South do more than bring unique, world-class artwork into our galleries— they inspire hundreds of performances, talks with artists, tours and workshops every year. And they inspire the people that come through our doors, across generations.

Help spark more discoveries in 2014 by making a gift and spreading the word so artists of every age can be brought together. Your support, in any amount, will mean new experiences for schools and families, locals and visitors, lifetime Studio Museum members and passerby, and art lovers from all walks of life.
