RE: Deep Breathing

Wednesday, May 1
This event has passed

This free program takes inspiration from Paul Chan’s exhibition, Breathers, to explore the ways that artists harness the power of deep breathing to activate social connection. The evening includes guided breathwork with artist Simiya Sudduth; a conversation about how opera singers use breath to animate artistic expression with Patricia Racette; and a discussion about the metaphor of breathing as creative social exchange, guided by Dr. Timothy Huffman.
