EXTRA CREDIT is a new education series that aims to provide a general overview of contemporary art and to demystify the field for those outside of the art world. It is ideal for anyone interested in learning more and for those looking to further engage with exhibitions and museums. Classes will take place on Sundays at 12PM from June 4 through July 30.

Kate Kraczon presents Whose Feminism? on Sunday, June 18. Explore feminism in the art of the last fifty years via ICA’s exhibition history, which reveals both prescience and limitations that reflect contemporary debates around the term.

This event is free and open to the public; register here.

KATE KRACZON is the Laporte Associate Curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, University of Pennsylvania, where she has organized over twenty exhibitions since joining the museum in 2008 from the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago.
