do it

do it is the longest-running and most far-reaching exhibition to ever happen, giving new meaning to the concept of the "Exhibition in Progress." do it takes written instructions by artists as a point of departure, which can be interpreted anew each time they are enacted.

Free Play

Free Play explores the work of artists who borrow from play and games to reveal social, philosophical, and cultural issues. From playfulness, to mathematical strategy, the artists have mined the significance of games, reinventing them to create experiences that often involve the viewer and reflect on the nature of participation in art.

Curated by Melissa E. Feldman
