Even though this symposium is for educators, it is open to the general public as well.

This symposium launches Teaching Modern and Contemporary Asian Art, a digital teaching resource that features 27 artists from the Guggenheim’s collection of modern and contemporary Asian art, and provides discussion questions, activity prompts, and historical context for educators in the classroom.

The afternoon includes artist talks by Cai Guo-Qiang and Navin Rawanchaikul, with opening remarks by Alexandra Munroe, Senior Curator of Asian Art at the Guggenheim. The symposium is followed by a reception and an opportunity to view the museum’s current exhibitions, including Artistic License: Six Takes on the Guggenheim Collection. Attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the companion handbook to Teaching Modern and Contemporary Asian Art.

MEETING POINT
At this time the museum has not listed where the symposium will take place. It will be in the auditorium but the museum has a secondary entrance which is usually used for educators' events and I do not know what they will decide to do.

If the museum does not post further information I will just post my location on this page when I get there.
