AT THE CROSSROADS OF ART AND HEALING
Negarra A. Kudumu's integrated, research-driven healing and curatorial practice engages in earnest, critical conversations about contemporary art, healing, and spirituality. The practice departs from the premise that both art and healing are about making: artists make art works, curators make exhibitions, and healers make sustainable integrated solutions that positively affect their clients' well-beings at the mind, body, and spirit levels. The curatorial practice engages with and advocates for artists through articles and publications, curating exhibitions, and talks. The healing practice identifies and uproots imbalances in the mind, body, and/or spirit; (re)establishes harmony so that all can work in good concert; and provides clients with adaptable toolkits they can use over time to sustain their healing.
