      SOLD OUT: Flawless Sabrina

      In her lifetime, Flawless Sabrina has been an artist, a psychologist, an activist, and an icon of drag performance. Her apartment on East 73rd Street has become equally legendary as a transformative space and a hub, where she continues to practice the art of the tarot as passed down to her by her grandmother. In 2014, Sabrina performed over one hundred readings in conjunction with the Whitney Biennial. Giving fifteen-minute readings in the Roof Deck Sculpture Garden, Sabrina’s tarot practice is informed by her unique insight and experience between worlds.

    • Discover the secrets of drawing, transforming blank pages into forms filled with life and energy. Exploring techniques of shadowing, perspective, and contour, our linear experiments will unlock the power of drawing to bring students’ imaginations to life. Students will respond to creative challenges in the gallery, studio, and outdoors that sharpen the power of drawing.

    • Experiment and explore the art of printmaking in this Gabriel Orozco–inspired Workshop! Taking note of the artist’s use of the everyday, students will create artworks that celebrate the magic in ordinary objects, while learning new and exciting techniques to help make their images a reality.

    • Presented by the Aspen Art Museum and Anderson Ranch Arts Center

      Hank Willis Thomas was born in 1976, in Plainfield, NJ, and currently lives and works in New York. This year, he and Eric Gottesman founded For Freedoms, the first artist-run super PAC. Inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 speech, “Four Freedoms” (freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear), this project has presented public works from contemporary artists to inspire deeper political engagement for citizens who want to have a greater impact on the American political landscape.
