Educator Workshop

Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich: The Russian Avant-Garde in Vitebsk, 1918-1922


Thursday, October 25, 2018
4 – 7 pm
Scheuer Auditorium

Pre-K-12 teachers are invited to join us to explore a little-known chapter in the history of modernity and the Russian avant-garde. Chagall, Lissitzky, Malevich: The Russian Avant-Garde in Vitebsk, 1918-1922 traces the fascinating post-revolutionary years when the history of art was shaped in Vitebsk, far from Russia’s main cities. The exhibition includes works by Marc Chagall, El Lissitzky, and Kazimir Malevich, as well as works by students and teachers of the Vitebsk school. The workshop will include a visit to the exhibition with Jewish Museum educators and a presentation by Kenneth E. Silver, Silver Professor of Art History, New York University. 

$18 (light dinner included). Special Education teachers may attend free of charge by calling 212.423.3270.

Registration deadline: Wednesday, October 24

Participants will receive 2.5 CTLE hours.
