Part of What Can a Body Do?
Mellon Tri-College Artist-in-residence Carmen Papalia will lead registered participants on a Blind Field Shuttle, a non-visual walking tour that will depart from the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery and follow a path around the Haverford campus chosen by Papalia. Space for this immersive, experiential art event will be limited to thirty participants. Reserve a spot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Carmen Papalia (b. 1981, Vancouver, BC) makes experiential projects about access with regard to public space, the art institution and visual culture. His current work creates the opportunity for participants to explore the entry points to experience that are often overlooked, and to engage in non-visual methods of knowing and interpretation. His work has been shown at Pro Arts in Oakland, California; Gallery Gachet in Vancouver, British Columbia, and as part of the Mildred’s Lane residency and the Open Engagement: Art + Social Practice Conference. Papalia has contributed to programming at the Columbus Museum of Art, the Portland Art Museum, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Purple Thistle Center. His upcoming projects include a series of art objects that can be experienced non-visually and a performance in which he will develop a walking map with the help of a marching band for Grand Central Art Center in Los Angeles. His current writings can be found in Stay Solid: A Radical Handbook for Youth (AK Press, 2012). Read “Caning In the City” on wordgathering.com
What Can A Body Do? is made possible with the support of the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities and the Mellon Tri-College Creative Residencies Program. haverford.edu/hcah
