During the long months of quarantine, many of us found ourselves missing art: the deep encounters that surprise and move us, helping us to understand the world (or reevaluate what we think we know about it). Virtual encounters with art, while not the same as face-to-face, allow us access to art with tour guides — artists, art educators, and institutional directors who can guide us to new understandings of iconic art or introduce us to art we have never seen before.

The Info Commons presents Inside Art: Talks with Artists & Art Educators about Contemporary & Modern Art, a monthly series, to take a deep dive into some NYC exhibits, to (re)examine some dominant narratives of modern art, and to explore the practice of working artists in their own words. We hope you’ll join us online.
