For the past week, Julia Greenway, yoga teacher and video art curator, has been offering museum-goers VIDEO//YOGA as a part of Down Time in our Test Site. VIDEO//YOGA is as a series of yoga classes taught side by side with video art; creating an immersive visual and yogic experience that activates and engages all the senses.
The Test Site space is activated through three monitors, playing a looped reel of video art. The video art pieces are specifically curated to move with the sequence of yoga poses and overall flow of the class. Greenway is working alongside local, national, and international video artists to curate three individualized reels entitled Light//Landscape, Desolate//Distopia, and Evolved//Pixelated. As a curator and teacher, Greenway is creating an experience that successfully integrates video art and yoga practice. The practice allows her to build an ever-deepening connection with her physical and mental self, which in turn fuels her creativity and allows her to find ease — and in turn, helps her students find the same calm and connection.
You are invited to join our last session tomorrow at noon and experience the enriching experience of yoga in an environment of freedom, creativity, and compassion.
