The Education Department of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Announces a New Season of the Public Program MODERN BILLINGS
On view November 20–December 20, 2020
With the support of Clear Channel Outdoor, the education department of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth announces a new season of the public program, MODERN BILLINGS. Using space from Clear Channel Outdoor as programming sites, Assistant Curators of Education Jesse Morgan Barnett and Tiffany Wolf Smith work with a variety of artists to situate imagery and text onto billboards, elements of the city that traditionally present commercial advertisements rather than cultural curiosities. For MODERN BILLINGS, artists place works into under-served communities along the periphery of downtown Fort Worth. These large-scale installations along Jacksboro Highway and the Lancaster corridor extend the reach of the Modern and the education department and provide an intervention opportunity for contemporary art in urban landscapes.
Information on this season and past series is available at www.themodern.org/modern-billings. ___________________________________________________________________________
For the seventh iteration of MODERN BILLINGS, Teen/Artist Project students designed nine billboards to be presented in Fort Worth, Texas. The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth’s Teen/Artist Project (TAP) is an ongoing program in which regional and national teaching artists expand the knowledge of art, analysis, and techniques for young, aspiring artists. For the first half of the 2020–2021 season of TAP, students are working remotely with visiting artists Carol Zou, Riso Bar, Gerald Cyrus, Raul Rodriguez and Deep Red Press, Jessi Jones, and others. Participating students include Sarah Carter, Anthony Hosch, Nadia Karjadi, Elliott Kinney, Grace Larsen, Ana Parker, El Niño Romero, Madeline O. Smith, and Paul Yu.
The TAP installation of MODERN BILLINGS will be on view November 20–December 20, 2020.
