Art, Environment, Action! is a creative laboratory that will bring together a diverse cross-section of artists, designers, architects, dancers, chefs, and scientists, working at the intersections of art, pedagogy, and ecology.
Designed as a "toy box" of possibilities, the gallery will be continually transformed through dynamic programs that will rely on public participation.
Visitors are invited to sign up for workshops, off-site explorations, walks, dialogues, and other interactive exchanges led by the artists, encouraging their active engagement as makers and thinkers. Artifacts of these exchanges will seed subsequent dialogue and interaction in the gallery.
"We see the galleries as spaces with which to think, rather than as venues for display," commented Radhika Subramaniam, Director and Chief Curator of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center and the curator of the lab.
"Art, Environment, Action! is about catalyzing a culture of conversation, creative experience, and action. It is co-created by participants and artists."
