Description of Activity

Workshop for two dozen MFA students (in various art practices, including dance, painting, video, jewelry making, performance) for an annual winter residency; this one was held at SOMA and Obrero Centro in Mexico City. I lead them through exercises and techniques developed for accessing states of consciousness developed from rituals derived from African-descended traditions in practice in the Americas. This was part of a development for decolonising art practise and theory, and toward an intercultural entanglement with the world.
