SexEd: COLLAB – student videos & artist talk

February 27, 2013 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Concurrently with the exhibition, SexEd: Chapter 1, curators Norene Leddy and Liz Slagus are leading a COLLAB course at Parsons/The New School for Design.

Through a series of collective and individual assignments, the SexEd COLLAB will engage students as full collaborators on the first stage of the SexEd project with SexEd: Chapter 1 at Cuchifritos Gallery & Project Space. Students will explore: the history of sex education in the US, the role of artists and activists in raising awareness of social issues related to sex and sex education, and creative ways to encourage and engage public participation and consciousness. Students will also be exposed to the planning, development, curriculum and documentation methods necessary to create successful public programming for exhibitions, as well as participating in public art projects that engage the public around social issues. As part of the SexEd COLLAB, students will produce videos for the YouwishyouwouldhaveknownTube call, a pop-up “confessional” for community use for making new videos for the project, as well as proposals for the SexEd residency program.

Join us in viewing the student produced videos for the YouwishyouwouldhaveknownTube call as a result of the SexEd COLLAB on Wednesday, February 27th from 12-1:30pm with an artist talk by guest critic/SexEd: Chapter 1 commissioned artist, Rebecca Herman.
