Active Looking:

The Body in Dialogue with Art

Join Yale alum Eryn Rosenthal, choreographer and social practice artist, in a playful exploration of how the body in motion can enliven virtual encounters with art and activate the imagination to the spaces we inhabit daily. Focusing on Ghanaian artist El Anatsui’s Society Woman’s Cloth (Gold), this participatory session explores concepts of scale, texture, connection, and history as they relate to what Rosenthal calls our interior and exterior landscapes. Participants are invited to wear comfortable clothes that allow for moving, bending and stretching; bring a large blanket or sheet, paper and a writing/drawing utensil. All bodies and abilities welcome. In collaboration with Bradley Assistant Curator of Academic Affairs, Sydney Simon. Generously sponsored by the John Walsh Lecture and Education Fund.

Closed captions will be available in English.
