Maria Gaspar: Disappearance Landscape – Session A

Disappearance Landscape is a virtual workshop that uses the body to interrogate and intervene highly contested sites. Using green screen strategies, participants will examine jails, prisons, border walls, conflict zones, and other places of power in order to mediate, flip, dissect, transpose, or dismantle forms of oppression and confinement.

The Henry Art Gallery will be mailing free kits to workshop registrants, that include paper and adhesive, to construct a greenscreen background for the participatory workshop. Once registered for this event, please email your preferred shipping address to ians@henryart.org. Because this workshop requires a mailed component, please register by January 26 to ensure receipt of your kit. Kits should arrive the week of February 1. Due to timing and shipping constraints, mailed kits will be limited to registrants residing in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Candice Lin: Fermented Face

Fermented Face is a workshop that uses facial massage and a guided meditation to ask questions about bodily borders, ideas of porosity and contamination, and the importance of touch in these contemporary times.

After the meditation, participants will journal and share aspects of their experience.
