Event Description: 

From daily life to work, from self to world, from awareness to non-awareness, from sentient to inert matter, what separates one “thing” or state from another?

Create a more dynamic awareness of the land beneath your footsteps as we engage with place and self through walking during this sensorial workshop. The workshop is an opportunity to nourish our ability of perception and to narrate these experiences in new ways. Explore the inter-relatedness of nature and culture through walking. Walking in, and with, an environment is to understand, relate, and participate as agents; it is to be fully alive. Allow artist Bibi Calderaro to guide you in activities that enhance creativity and meaning-making through presence.

The workshop lasts about 3 hours at a relaxed paced. Please wear comfortable footwear, sunscreen and appropriate layered clothing. Bring along water and a snack. Registration is required by email to Bibi Calderaro. Please include what called your attention to this event and note if you have specific requirements or disabilities.

Bibi is an artist who has exhibited her work nationally and internationally, including at museums such as P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center / MoMA, Bronx Museum of the Arts, El Museo del Barrio (all NYC), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Spain), Museum of Modern Art, and National Museum of Fine Arts (both Argentina). She is the recipient of awards from the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation, Atlantic Center for the Arts, and Aaron Siskind Foundation, among others. Bibi holds an MFA from Queens College/CUNY, NY, and a BA from Wesleyan University, CT.
