Rebuilding the Present artist Rhonda Wheatley will lead a workshop that focuses on helping participants shed both the weight of other people's projections and their own harsh expectations of themselves in order to reset. Participants will center themselves in who they really are at the core through guided meditations, writing exercises, and other practices. This experience is free and open to the public!
These events are part of the programming forRebuilding the Present, presented in partnership withDavid Lynch Foundation Chicago.Rebuilding the Presentbrings together artists whose works engage a spectrum of meditative practices. The paintings, objects, audio works, and performance documentation on view suggest that meditation can function as a tool of not only self-care but of social justice writ large, offering practitioners a sense of agency to cope in the ever-growing chaos of our world. The exhibition features works by Leslie Baum, Meredith Haggerty, Cameron Harvey, Susan Hiller, David Lynch, Stan Shellabarger, and Rhonda Wheatley.
