Everything we organize is an occasion for creating experiences that show us and our audiences something we did not know beforehand about ourselves, our surroundings, and our communities.

Below you can find information on accessibility, docent-led -visits, audio and digital guides, activities, learnshops, and research resources to engage our programs.

Docent-led visits: On weekends, we offer docent-led visits of our ongoing exhibitions for individuals and groups alike. These tours are for everybody and discuss the exhibition’s themes by highlighting artworks and selected artist’s practices, their context, and the possible connections with local concerns. You do not need to be a contemporary art expert to join our visits.

All tours start outside of the 315 Maujer entrance, and last between 30-45 minutes. The tours in English begin at 4pm, and at 3pm in Spanish.

Explore Our Campus: We offer tours to explore our award-winning campus designed by Brooklyn-based office SO-IL. During your visit, you will learn about the materials, versatility, and philosophy behind our buildings.

These architecture tours are only offered in English every first Sunday of the month at 12:30pm, up to 15 people can join on a first-come first-served basis. We also offer group tours outside of this schedule for a modest fee. If you are interested in any of these tours, please contact tours@amant.org.

Digital and Audio Guides: To prepare for your visit or enhance your experience while you are here, we offer guides of our exhibitions in both English and Spanish, as well as guides with large print.

Our guides accompany the visitors during their visit, providing the context necessary to fully understand the stories behind the artworks while providing a space for free interpretation.

You can access our guides as a pdf preview on our website and in print at our entrance desks at 315 Maujer and Gallery 932 Grand. We offer interpretative descriptive audio guides of some of the artworks, in which the artists and curators of the exhibitions allow for a closer and more intimate experience of the exhibitions.

In any effort to create lasting and future social change, youth and children are the most valuable interlocutors and partners. We prioritize our partnerships with the whole school community, including students, parents, and educators.

We offer docent-led group visits in both English and Spanish for our younger audiences, ages 9-18. These visits provide an in-depth view of the exhibitions and artists, their contexts, and materials and engage the group through inquiry-based learning activities that involve personal interpretation as well as creative exercises.

During these visits, Amant also provides Learning Resources with activities designed by artists that provide context to our projects and that explore connections with the art on view, the visitor’s own experiences, and the wider community.

Tours for schools and younger audiences are free and can be scheduled on Thursdays and Fridays 10am-6pm.

In our group visits for senior communities, we focus on storytelling and cross-generational knowledge sharing. With the assistance of a Visitor Engagement Representative, visitors view the exhibitions and artworks from up close to develop reciprocal conversations and share experiences afterwards over coffee and tea.

These tours and activities are available in both English and Spanish for groups of maximum 15 people and are designed for local senior centers and community associations.

In our learnshops we delve into a specific concept or question related to an ongoing theme or study line that runs across all our programs. These are small group experiences guided by different members of our creative community, promoting a plurality of knowledges.

Audience participation and conversation are key to creating a communal and reciprocal idea of learning. Guided by our interest in slowing down the art-making process, we design learnshops for audiences across generations and backgrounds, adaptable to different paces.

The learnshops typically last 2 hours and are open to all, but registration is required.

All of our programs, from exhibitions to workshops to residency programs, are centered on process and research.

Mediation space and Research Center: We are gradually building up a reference library made of books, magazines, interviews and documentation that brings together materials related to our exhibitions, learnshops and also our residency programs. Materials related to ongoing exhibitions can be perused in our mediation and research space at Geza.

Media Archive: in the library section on our website, you can see past publications as well as conversations with artists in audio or video format with transcripts or closed captions in English.
