Led by Malik K. Bellamy, each twenty-minute massage session offered between 2 and 4 p.m. will consist of compression, tapotement, and a hand-and-foot massage incorporating gentle stretching. The goal of these sessions is to stimulate circulation and increase range of motion, preparing you for the rest of your day.

Bellamy attended Helma Institute of Massage Therapy and received his professional massage therapist certificate in 2006. His mother, Suzanne Bellamy, is a former member of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense.

This care session is offered in conjunction with “Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room.” All care sessions will be open to the public free of charge and will take place on the Fifth Floor. Unless otherwise noted, participants must sign up in the New Museum Lobby half an hour before each session to attend. Space is limited, and admission is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
