"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."

Art21 Educators is an intensive, year-long professional development initiative and learning community. The program is designed to support teachers of K-12 visual arts, language arts, humanities, social studies, and media arts who are interested in bringing contemporary art, artists, and themes into classroom teaching and learning, and broadening their curricular focus to include inquiry into contemporary issues and questions that demand cross-curricular knowledge and ways of thinking through contemporary art.
