All of our programs, from exhibitions to learnshops to residency programs, are centered on process and research. Part of our learning mission is providing access to materials and involving our audiences and collaborators in this process, at times building longer partnerships in this endeavor.
In our Online Library we gather publications, documents, audio, and video recordings of interviews with artists, writers, and cultural workers. This repository provides contextual information gathered from our programs and ongoing research, as well as collateral reflections from artists and collaborators. Our Library is a place where new, living connections between themes, people, and formats arise.
Video and audio materials in the library have closed captions and transcripts in English.
Brooklyn Autism Center: During each exhibition, Amant develops a unique program which includes a tour and activity for the BAC students. We create space for both the students and Amant educators to learn together. This collaboration is paving the way for Amant to become neurologically diverse.
Lyons Community School: Together with the Lyons Community School’s middle and high school students and educators, we produce learning initiatives through and with art that centers youth development and community. Lyons is based in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a ten-minute walk from Amant.
Brooklyn Art Book Fair: Every summer we partner with the Brooklyn Art Book Fair (a volunteer-run initiative) sharing our mutual interest in books and in supporting small, often self-organized publishing projects. During the fair, we co-host learnshops and talks, that expanding the art of bookmaking in a wide array of formats.
School for Poetic Computation: We like to collaborate with organizations for whom learning and developing new learning methods are key to their projects. Building on the (un)learnings from SFPC: Sex Ed, a workshop series organized by the Brooklyn-based School for Poetic Computation, we co-organized a full day of workshops, talks, and activations to re-imagine sex education as a pleasure and queer-centered pedagogical experiment.
