February 5th
– 2:00pm – 2:40pm
– 3:00pm – 3:40pm


As part of Year of Uncertainty Artist-in-residence Gabo Camnitzer’s project The Student Body, dancer, movement researcher and elementary school teacher Danielle Staropoli will lead a movement workshop collaborating with participating children to explore the ways they physically experience classroom design. In a 40 minute workshop, children between 7 and 9 years-old will be facilitated in experiment with different ways of using the classroom carpet Lots of Dots. Children will also be encouraged to think critically about the ways learning spaces are designed, and how they might design them differently, through a discussion with Gabo Camnitzer.


Children will be encouraged to think critically about the spaces designed by adults for them.


Each workshop session can accommodate up to 6 children. Parents can visit the museum for the duration of the workshop. If interested please rsvp to: gabocamn@gmail.com
