The Getty Center
Thursday, June 11th 12:30pm – 2:00pm
RSVP to email@example.com for meeting instructions. Space is limited.
During this tour of the Getty Center, we will learn to communicate with objects. We will learn various techniques for “remote psychometry” that help us to open our empathic centers and listen with our full selves. We will take turns sharing our psychic impressions of three different art objects, and compare notes.
The exercises that we will explore are designed to nurture space for creativity, imagination, and critical consciousness. It is my hope that in learning these deep listening practices, we can learn to better stand in solidarity with struggles against exploitation, appropriation, and colonization. Let us re-sensitize ourselves to the “culture” that we consume.
