Museum Meditations with Kris Seto
Tuesday, November 16, 2 – 3pm
Wednesday, November 17, 12 - 1pm
Join movement artist Kris Seto on a gentle guided meditation through the first floor of the University Art Museum. “Sight and thought are often over-privileged in our society, but we see and sense with so much more.” Slow down your inputs and nervous systems in search of an expanded sense of time, body, presence, and awareness. Then, through movement, improvisation, and imagination prompts, participants will traverse the space and artwork finding agency, fluidity, and curiosity along the way.
All bodies and abilities welcome.
New Asian Futures: A diasporic dance + dialogue workshop
Tuesday, November 16, 6 – 7pm
“As Asian + Pacific Islander folx, it can feel like we are navigating many different worlds, cultures, and forces all at once. How must we move through our systems of hierarchy? And what do these expectations feel like in the body?” Join artist Kris Seto for a movement workshop that seeks to unearth embodiment, expand capacities, and deepen our sense of belonging. By tuning inwards, we tune in to new futures and how we want to move through the world.
The artist asks that this session center AAPI and mixed-race participants. All abilities are welcome.
