Join us on Tuesday, May 12 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Christie’s Education, New York for a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Julie Reiss, Program Director of the Modern Art and Its Market Master’s.

Mapping, Extracting and Remaking: Contemporary Artists and the Environment panelists will include contemporary artists Matthew Jensen, Alice Momm and Vadis Turner. All three create artwork that engages with the environment, either through interaction with specific places or through their choice of materials or both. Matthew Jensen maps the landscape or the cityscape through walks and photography. Alice Momm collects natural materials and adapts them to create indoor and outdoor installations. Vadis Turner uses a craft-based process to create colorful contemporary heirlooms, repurposing discarded textiles that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Each artist will make a short presentation about their work before we open the room up to discussion.

This event is open to students and alumni of all levels as well as to the public. Space is limited and a reservation is required. Please email
