notMoMA by Stephanie Syjuco and Portland area youth artists

with a live performance from (E)mpress at 6:30 p.m.

Marvels.presents Stephanie Syjuco’s notMoMA, a work of social practice art engaging local high school students from Jefferson, Reynolds and Gresham High School. notMoMA asks students to remake artworks from the Museum of Modern Art (New York) collection by studying them on MoMA’s website. Their task is to reproduce the work to the best of their ability with the resources available to them. With notMoMA, Syjuco asks questions about valuation, authorship, access and who is really at the center of the art world?
