Program for secondary education and high school students
Visits geared towards Jr High and High school students hope to make the works of art significant and intelligible, breaking with the preconceived idea that Museum visits are simply boring contemplation. They hope to stimulate the students to form their own criteria through analysis and reflection, steering them to draw parallels between things in their lives and what they see in the Museum, and showing them how artistic practice is not necessarily elitist, isolated, or self-absorbed.

Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
