Free Community Opening: Embodied Change

Mar 25 2022

Seattle Asian Art Museum

Entire Building

11 AM – 5 PM

Join us in celebrating the opening of Embodied Change: South Asian Art Across Time with a day of free art activities and artist interactions at the Seattle Asian Art Museum. The ancient and contemporary South Asian artists in this exhibition explore the myriad of ways in which the body is depicted, especially the female and non-binary body.

Programs taking place during the community opening include an artist talk with artist Humaira Abid, a Bharatnatyam and Kathak dance performance by South Asian art collective Pratidhwani, and a take-away Madhubani painting activity designed by artist Deepti Agrawal. Activities will occur throughout the day during the museum's open hours.

This community opening event takes place on Last Friday where admission to the Seattle Asian Art Museum is free. Reserving tickets in advance is recommended but not required.
