Community Acupuncture with Julia Bennett

“Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room”: Care Sessions

Community acupuncture is a growing approach to providing accessible, cost-effective treatment to groups of people in a soothing, shared environment. Participants will be separated by folding screens for privacy and treated together for twenty-minute acupuncture sessions. 

Julia Bennett is a board-certified, licensed acupuncturist whose particular passion is community health and the health concerns of women, with an emphasis on working with women who have tested positive for HIV and AIDS. Bennett believes that one of the greatest health challenges of our humanity involves addressing wellness as a birthright. 

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.


“Simone Leigh: The Waiting Room” is made possible by support provided by the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation and the Toby Devan Lewis Emerging Artists Exhibitions Fund.

Artist commissions at the New Museum are generously supported by the Neeson / Edlis Artist Commissions Fund. Artist residencies are made possible, in part, by Laurie Wolfert.

Further exhibition support is provided by public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Endowment support is provided by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Skadden, Arps Education Programs Fund, and the William Randolph Hearst Endowed Fund for Education Programs at the New Museum.
