Bodies of Indigenous Belief
Sunday, March 8
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Common Ground Gallery
A multidisciplinary art event that explores indigenous ritual as a path toward wellness and integration of intergenerational trauma.
Baltimore-based Wellness Artist Irmina Ulysse offers dance, song and discussion about Haitian Vodou, well-being, and spirituality. A mystic who is also known as Rev. Tutu, Ulysse spreads Haitian arts culture via chants, poetry and folkways crafts. She works as a creative healer through Clearwater Wellness and Spiritual Counseling and provides sacred arts leadership through a water and movement ministry.
The event is held in conjunction with Light gets in, on view at VisArts through March 8th. In the exhibition, artist MJ Neuberger weaves her hair into cloth made by indigenous Filipino weavers, acknowledging her connection to tribes whose sacred rituals were cast as savage spectacles by U.S. colonizers of the Philippines.
Free and open to the public. $5 suggested donation.
