New Museum First Saturdays for Families: In and Around the Avian
December 3 2011
Journey through the astonishing installations and immersive environments of “Carsten Höller: Experience.” In the scientist-turned-artist’s first New York survey, families are able to study the natural world through Höller’s artworks, in particular, swarms of fish in his Aquarium, 1996, or the dozens of flying canaries in his Singing Canaries Mobile, 2009.
From 10 to 11 a.m., join New Museum educators in the 7th Floor Sky Room and Theater for a hands-on workshop creating ornithological study guides and mobiles; then explore the art of Carsten Höller starting at 11 a.m. All galleries will be closed until 11 a.m. To participate in the Untitled (Slide), 2011, or Mirror Carousel, 2005, visitors must be at least 48 inches tall and must sign the Visitor Guidelines and Waiver for “Carsten Höller: Experience.””
