Iteru: Fluid Presence – Collective Drawing & Movement Workshops w/ Katherine Toukhy
In-person at AANM; Free with RSVP
Register for Thursday, July 13 | Register for Thursday, Aug. 3
Join AANM and artist-in-residence Katherine Toukhy for a workshop engaging process-based drawing and movement, in conjunction with Iteru. Iteru is a community-sourced art piece that centers BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) residents to explore their physical movements and sensory knowledge of native plants to discover the rhythms and shapes that bring us together and express change, right now. What is the visual symbiosis between plant forms and human forms? How can we co-create spaces of trust, fun, and freedom to let our bodies move to their own impulses? What stories do our physical movements tell us about our resistance and thriving?
Please note that this workshop is open to and can accommodate for all abilities.

Katherine Toukhy is a visual artist and educator currently living and working in Flatbush, Brooklyn (unceded Lenapehoking). Her roots growing up as part of a small Coptic Egyptian diaspora in Rhode Island have informed who she is and how she works. In the studio, she draws upon movement, plant life, patterns and her intersectional reality to transform figurative shapes into mixed media pieces for installation, video and public art. In her art and teaching practices, Toukhy elevates equally the craft of making inspiring artwork and the social processes of working with people to build equity.
