Puzzles-t

Students enjoy interviews with MoMA curators, conservators, and collection specialists, and explore compelling works in MoMA’s collection by artists such as Cindy Sherman, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Jeff Koons, Sol Lewitt, Allan McCollum, and Richard Serra.

This course combines studio demonstrations of collage techniques with close study of significant works in MoMA’s collection. Detailed demonstrations will show you how to make your own collages, inspired by the ways in which these masters pushed the boundaries of representation and materials. Watch videos about works by some of the masters of collage, including Pablo Picasso, Joseph Cornell, Hannah Höch, Robert Rauschenberg, Mark Bradford, and others.
