Brazilian artists Michel Groisman (b. 1972) and Gabriela Duvivier (b. 1974) lead the public in activities designed to create and challenge social relationships. Sirva-Se (“help yourself”) proposes a group experience that uses glasses of water as a vehicle for communication. Throughout the activity, participants are invited to attach the glasses to different parts of the body and, through the simple act of passing water from one participant to another, explore issues such as trust, cooperation, silence, and flow.

Space is limited. Sign up is first come, first served in the Cullman Education and Research Building beginning at 1:00 p.m. on the day of the program. Each session is approximately 75 minutes in length.

In conjunction with the exhibitions Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948–1988 and MoMA Studio: Breathe with Me

MoMA Studios are free, interactive spaces offering drop-in programs and artist- and educator-led workshops to visitors of all ages in conjunction with an exhibition or a topic related to modern and contemporary art. These experiences complement looking and talking about works of art in the galleries, allowing for engagement with art in participatory, creative ways. Visitors can experiment, play, and create as they make connections between their lives, their own creativity, and the processes and materials of modern and contemporary art.
