Contemplative Art Viewing
Mindfulness educator Mitra Manesh leads this workshop in the exhibition World on the Horizon: Swahili Arts Across the Indian Ocean. Contemplative art viewing uses mindfulness practices to explore the relationship between art and the self. Manesh is a graduate of UCLA’s Mindfulness Facilitation Program, offered through the Mindfulness Awareness Research Center (MARC) at the UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
World on the Horizon explores Swahili arts as objects of mobility, outcomes of encounter, and as products of trade and imperialism. Works from different regions and time periods come together in this exhibition to reveal the movement of artistic forms, motifs, and preferences, and to reflect the changing meanings they may carry during the course of their life histories.
