This drop-in tour led by Joan Tisch Teaching Fellow Ayanna Dozier examines the social frameworks of identity. Specifically, viewers will focus on the constructions of race, gender, and sexuality as they are conveyed through artists' practices. The tour will examine select works from the Whitney's sixth floor permanent collection exhibition, Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019.
