Art and Stress Relief Merge at the New Museum
Need a massage? This September you can get one in an unlikely place—an art museum. Simone Leigh’s exhibition at the New Museum, entitled The Waiting Room, explores black subjectivities, particularly those of women. She focuses on an expanded notion of medicine, creating a temporary apothecary. Until the show ends on the 18th, public programming will give visitors access to health services during “care sessions.” From September 4th–10th, these will include free massages, acupuncture, and guided meditation.
