BFAMFAPhD presents Making and Being, a series of conversations that ask: What ways of making and being do we want to experience in art classes? The series places artists and educators in intimate conversation about forms of critique, cooperatives, artist-run spaces, healing, and the death of projects. These conversations about Art & Pedagogy are co-presented by BFAMFAPhD & Pioneer Works Press, hosted by Hauser & Wirth, covered by media partners Eyebeam and Bad at Sports. The sixth installment of this series will focus on how group agreements are necessary in gatherings that occur at residencies, galleries, and cultural institutions today. The conversation will include Sarah Workneh, Laurel Ptak, and Danielle Jackson.  Sarah Workneh has been Co-Director at Skowhegan for nine years leading the educational program and related programs in NY throughout the year, and oversees facilities on campus. Previously, Sarah worked at Ox-Bow School of Art as Associate Director. She has served as a speaker in a wide variety of conferences and schools. She has played an active role in the programmatic planning and vision of peer organizations, most recently with the African American Museum of Philadelphia. She is a member of the Somerset Cultural Planning Commission's Advisory Council (ME); serves on the board of the Colby College Museum of Art. Laurel Ptak is a curator of contemporary art based in New York City. She is currently Executive Director & Curator of Art in General. She has previously held diverse roles at non-profit art institutions in the US and internationally, including the Guggenheim Museum (New York), MoMA PS. 1 Contemporary Art Center (New York), Museo Tamayo (Mexico City), Tensta Konsthall (Stockholm) and Triangle (New York). Ptak has organized countless exhibitions, public programs, residencies and publications together with artists, collectives, thinkers and curators. Her projects have garnered numerous awards, fellowships, and press for their engagement wit
