With Camille Hoffman and Sarah Gambito


Sat, Mar 31 / 1–3 pm

For this workshop, MAD exhibiting artist Camille Hoffman teams up with esteemed author and poet Sarah Gambito to engage in a generative exploration of creative writing, bodily kinetics, and art making. Participants will assemble an ekphrastic ceremony that meditates on landscape as a portal to unexpected and co-created narratives.
