Art and Practice is a series of programs that bring together emerging and experienced artists to explore the challenges and possibilities of sustaining a creative life.
For this session, Okwui Okpowasili invites participants to collectively imagine possible futures. Through discussion, scores, gestures, and images, we will explore the question, “How does the body move and sound in the future?” Together we will test the Zoom format as a space of practice.
This two-hour program is for anyone who identifies as an artist and will take place over Zoom. This program is free, but an application form is required.
