K. J. Holmes leads a Happening—an experience structured around walking, moving, and opening our perceptions of various artists’ work. Within a small group, each person focuses on their creative mind and body, shifting the boundaries in time between artwork and viewer, self and others. The November 15 and 16 programs take place in the exhibition Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction—The Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift.
Capacity: 20 participants. Registration is available 30 minutes before the program begins, in the Floor 2 Marron Atrium, at the meeting point sign. Free with admission. Program length: 60 minutes
