I am an Adjunct Faculty member at Sotheby's Institute, and a core critic at New York University. I've worked with Lyle Ashton Harris for about 6 years, critiquing and advising undergraduate students regarding research, project development, and final reviews. I have also been an adjunct faculty for the New York School of Interior Design. These are some images from recent teaching experiences.
Also, in this area, will be images from talks, lectures and student crititques.
Tyler Mitchell was a guest in Lyle Ashton Harris' performance class at NYU in which I am a frequent collaborator. After watching some of the students' presentations, he was impressed and invited several of the students to screen their work to a larger audience, all through a streaming platform. After the screening, Lyle and I participated in a dialogue with Tyler and the students.
I asked the students to read all of the negative press on the Vessel and provided links to various articles. We then experienced it as a group which allowed them to consider participation and experience versus press, and what that means. They arrived at their own conclusions as to whether or not the work is 'successful' and how they would have changed the marketing strategies.
