Study Sessions is an ongoing event series inspired by Fred Moten and Stefano Harney’s notion of study as “what you do with other people.” For each Study Session, an artist, writer, or cultural worker selects a work of art on view in the Whitney’s permanent collection galleries as a departure point for thinking through an urgent question in our contemporary political landscape. Participants are invited to join together in open-ended discussions, and engage with creative practice. Study Sessions may take the form of workshops, listening parties, performances, readings, or film screenings. This session is led by Yulan Grant.

Yulan Grant is a New York based multi-disciplinary artist from Kingston, Jamaica. As a creative positioned between Caribbean and American culture, her work interrogates ideas of identity, notions of power, perceived histories and the entanglements that happen within these topics. Grant is interested in the role that new media plays in artistic practices and the dialogue they hope to create. Grant's recent exhibitions include Paradise Garage in Los Angeles, CA; MoMA PS1 in Queens, NY, Bowerbird in Philadelphia, PA, Edel Assanti in London, England and GAMeC in Bergamo, Italy among others.
