Non-Visual Site Mapping: Chelsea Market

This program is presented in conjunction with Carmen Papalia's solo exhibition, Long Time No See. Free and open to the public. RSVPs are required.

Close your eyes and take your first few steps into the non-visual world! In this experiential workshop, artist Carmen Papalia invites the participant to explore the possibilities for learning and knowing that become available through the non-visual senses, and to trust in the revelatory practice that is non-visual interpretation. Through trust exercises, group and independent blind orienteering and collaborative map making, participants will discover new geographic contours from which to develop a sense of place. After using their non-visual senses as a primary method of place making, participants will develop a sensibility around non-visual experience as a productive practice. The site map created by participants will be on view in the gallery for the duration of the exhibition.

Limited to 20 participants. RSVP:
