Full Body is a series of exhibitions curated by CalArts artist in residence Tatiana Vahan. The series focuses loosely on the subject of the body and takes place between July and October 2016 on the 11th floor of The REEF in downtown Los Angeles. The first exhibition took place on Saturday, July 9th with a re-performance of a work by the late Brazilian artist Lygia Clark, titled Viagem (Voyage). Originally performed in 1973 and presented on Saturday by artist Julia Kouneski, the work involves wrapping, carrying, then unwrapping a body with contemporary news.

Practical exercises and hands on instruction make this more of a fun road trip and less of a crash course, so come along for the ride and elevate your vision.
