  • Jul 31

    • Lauren King is a soloist with the New York City Ballet whose Slow.Look.Live. session will engage with Maren Hassinger’s Roof Deck Sculpture Garden installation Paradise Regained (2020). Hassinger’s spindly and curved wire structures are inspired by the movement of grasses and reeds swaying in the wind, and appear to dance with the changing shadows of the day. For her session of Slow.Look.Live., King will speak about her evolving relationship to movement at this time and will lead viewers in a dance activity inspired by Hassinger’s installation.

      Carrie Mae Weems

      Acclaimed artist Carrie Mae Weems will discuss RESIST COVID/TAKE 6!, her new art initiative currently featured in the Aspen Times Artist Takeover series. Weems’s project alludes to recommendations that people stay six feet apart from one another during the COVID-19 pandemic and aims to draw attention to the ways in which the deadly virus has disproportionately impacted people of color. Printed on posters, billboards, flyers, and other public-facing platforms, Weems’s photo-based campaign seeks to heighten public awareness of the impact of social and economic disparity while also paying homage to the essential workers who have placed themselves in harm’s way during the pandemic. Weems will speak about the immediate messaging of this project and prompt a broader dialogue about the long-term toll on the communities hardest hit by the pandemic.
