The exhibition Un-Representation seeks to provide a space of healing for Black communities, with abstract art by Black creators serving as a source of meditative restoration. Self-identifying Black Skidmore students are invited to a meditation practice on Friday, September 17, at 3:30 pm. Led by Maria Staack ’22, the exhibition curator, the session will focus on breath as it relates to the artwork Transolitude by Sanford Biggers.

Because this event has very limited capacity, registration is required. Register for the event.

Staack is the 2020-21 Meg Reitman Jacobs ’63 Endowed Intern, and the exhibition and the series of guided meditations are her capstone project. The series will also include a session for Skidmore faculty and staff. View the full list of sessions.

For those unable to attend this session, recorded guided meditations created by Skidmore alumna Tobi Ewing ’15 are available for listening with the exhibition at any time during museum hours.
