New to contemporary art but curious to learn more? Enjoy sharing thoughts and perspectives with other audience members? Ready to deep-dive into the ideas and themes in an artist’s work? Field Guide is a unique opportunity for facilitated dialogue and exchange among a small group of festival-goers eager to discover and explore a particular exhibition or performance in more depth, including an artist’s social, political, cultural, and aesthetic influences. In this session, join TBA:16 Guest Scholar Maya Mikdashi for a pre-show workshop with presentation and discussion, group viewing of Ali Chahrour’s Leila’s Death, and post-show conversation over light refreshments. No contemporary art expertise required. Bring a friend!

Performance: 6:30 – 7:30 PM at the Winningstad Theatre
