Join New Museum artist-in-residence Ilya Vidrin for a private look into their collaborative process and methodology: somatic partnering. Vidrin’s research considers the social potential for a more bodily understanding of community care through “partnering studies,” which focus on the ways we move through and take up space with others. These studies consist of loopable, relational exercises that constrain movement and invite generative relational awareness. Presented by the New Museum’s Department of Education and Public Engagement, this program will take place on Thursday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m.
The evening’s lecture and demonstration of somatic partnering studies will inform Vidrin’s performances of More or Less, the culmination of the 2022 New Museum Artist Residency, “Ilya Vidrin: Everything You Do Matters, No Matter What You Do,” in September. Learn more about the public performances of More or Less on September 9 and 10.
This private program will be presented onsite at the New Museum. All attendees are required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status. Performers may be un-masked and will be socially distanced from the audience while performing. Review the New Museum’s COVID guidelines in advance of your visit.
