MoMA Offers Free Online Photography Course

moma

Taking pictures all the time or following all the best Instagram accounts doesn’t necessarily mean you know what you’re doing (or even looking at). Luckily the Museum of Modern Art is here to help! Seeing Through Photographs is the first online course open to the general public en masse.

Drawing on content from MoMA’s own collection, the aim of the course is to bridge the gap between seeing a photograph and actually understanding how it works by exposing participants to various perspectives on what photography is and how it’s used. And not just today but throughout history! The course also makes use of various media: short films, video conversations, and audio slideshows featuring artist interviews. Check out Coursera.org for more information!

Her first solo show, Aqua Regalia – Chapter Two, runs from November 19th to December 19th at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City. “Aqua Regalia” refers to the alchemical process of dissolving gold. Using a variety of materials and techniques (graphite, spray paint, ink, photography, collage, found objects), Faith’s work is concerned with the valuation and transformation of things that have been lost or overlooked.

Watch Shia LaBeouf Watch 72 Hours of Shia LaBeouf Movies (Live)

shia-clapping

Noon yesterday, Shia LaBeouf started a movie marathon. He is watching every movie he’s ever made in reverse chronological order, over the course of 72 hours at the Angelika Film Center. Visitors are welcome to join him (admission is free). If you don’t live in New York you can watch a live stream of his face watching his own face here on New Hive (I streamed it for a bit and he looked very tired and bored).

This is real. The work is being presented as a performance art piece by his collective, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, entitled #ALLMYMOVIES.
