This book event presents the work of Asian American artists who work with archives. History as Art, Art as History pioneers methods for using contemporary works of art in the social studies and art classroom to enhance an understanding of visual culture and history. The fully-illustrated interdisciplinary teaching toolkit provides an invaluable pedagogical resource – complete with theoretical background and practical suggestions for teaching U.S. history topics through close readings of both primary sources and provocative works of contemporary art.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Dipti Desai is an Associate Professor and Director of the Art Education Program at NYU.
