How does an idea transform into an art object and ultimately into an exhibition? What is their meaning and relevance? What ideas come into play? What can form do? What can art history do? These questions pose themselves again and again to different generations and different groups of visitors, collaborators, thinkers, and artists. By way of artist talks, symposia and workshops, performances, guided tours, and special programs for kids and schools, our theory and education programs create entryways into contemporary art and its thinking.
