Lygia Clark’s Sensorial Art
Thursday, July 17, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
The René d' Harnoncourt Exhibition Galleries, sixth floor
Museum visitors are accustomed to looking at artworks, but not necessarily interacting with them. This interactive Gallery Session builds on the idea that an artwork can challenge our traditional notions of art when it progressively engages all of our senses. Explore how this approach affects each of us individually, and think about the implication for socially engaged art—and what that term means.
In conjunction with the exhibition Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948–1988
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
