@icasanjose Instagram Live
Taro Hattori is sculptor and installation artist who creates environments where viewers are faced with a conflicting issue, questions to ponder, and an experience with which to grapple. Join us on Instagram Live where Hattori will lead a tea ceremony and an ikebana (flower arrangement) project that asks us to confront conflicts or concerns in our daily life in order to refocus our attention and appreciation of everyday pleasures. You are encouraged to follow along with Hattori and may have the opportunity of joining him live on Instagram.
Join us here and bring the following objects:
A plate or a dish that holds water
A piece of sweets that makes you smile
A cup of tea or any drink that lets you dream
A pen that lets you ponder
A paper you can find around you
A pair of scissors if you have them
Three small rocks if you have them
About P(ractice) S(afe) A(rt) with the ICA:
The ICA San José is delighted to roll out a plan for opportunities to engage with us during the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic. We’re calling these PSA’s from the ICA. Though they may be a lot like Public Service Announcements (they can educate and bring awareness!), here PSA actually means: P(ractice) S(afe) A(rt)! These will include free programming for all of our audiences, member-specific programming, and even some physical outdoor opportunities to see Art. Join us as we celebrate our fortieth anniversary over the course of this year, delve into conversations about what the future of museums and arts organizations might look like after Covid-19, how museums are reinventing themselves, how artistic practice is changing, how artists are coping, and much more!
We look forward to seeing you soon as we all practice Safe Art together.
