The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design
Philadelphia, PA
September 13 – December 6, 2014

 

The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design will host the first  presentation of do it in Philadelphia. Over seventy published artist instructions will be brought into existence by local artists, performers, curators and the public, resulting in installations that range from the explicitly sculptural to the performative, the poetic to the absurd.  According to Kaytie Johnson, Rochelle F. Levy Director and Chief Curator, “staging do it creates new opportunities for involvement by – and with – local communities.  The generative and democratic nature of the project enables The Galleries to continue exploring ways to broaden access and participation in contemporary art, which is central to our mission.  I think the public will enjoy the DIY sensibility of the show, especially since it demystifies the presence and importance of original artwork.  We’re thrilled to be the first venue in Philadelphia to invite the public to do it.”
