DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with the exhibition Enter the Mandala: Cosmic Centers and Mental Maps of Himalayan Buddhism, the museum presents a newly commissioned performance by visual artist Saya Woolfalk, which will be developed during her residency at Headlands Center for the Arts.

The artist’s work encompasses performance art while drawing from anthropology, mythology and science fiction to explore notions of hybridity and utopia. Woolfalk’s new work will feature the Empathics, a fictional group of women who blend racial and ethnic identities as they transform, taking on characteristics of humans and plants.

The performance features an original soundtracks composed by Paul D. Miller a.k.a. DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid. Tonight's event is presented in collaboration with Headlands Center for the Arts.
