During this tour of MOMA PS1, we will learn to communicate with some of Nikki de Saint Phalle’s art objects. We will learn various techniques for “remote psychometry” that encourage intuitive, bodily and empathic modes for appreciating art. Art is alive, sentient, and shaping our spirit at all times. After tuning in to each object, we all share our impressions and compare notes.
The exercises that we will explore are designed to nurture space for creativity, imagination, and critical consciousness. It is my hope that in learning these deep listening practices, we can learn to better stand in solidarity with struggles against exploitation, appropriation, and colonization. Let us re-sensitize ourselves to the “culture” that we consume.
