Events are experiments. I sometimes create intimate events to test an hypothesis with just a few participants. From these experiments emerge larger models, or small lessons which bloom later on.

Some very small but significant events I conceived at the beginning of my curating career had to do with applying yoga techniques to the experience of art. How can we contemplate art? Can we use art as a meditation tool? What techniques are available to us to reach enlightenment through beauty? Can there be a yoga of art? From these experiments was born “Contemplative Aesthetics”: meditation tools for contemplating art in order to experience a higher form of catharsis.
