Living as form
september 5 – December 6, 2013
Peeler Art Center, University Gallery (lower level)
In collaboration with twenty-five curators from around the world, Nato Thompson has selected 50 projects as the foundation of this exhibition, which will expand as it travels. New additions will be selected by each host institution, increasing the diversity of works made in the last twenty years that are represented in the show. Circulating via a hard drive, on which the new projects will be uploaded, Living as Form (The Nomadic Version) will provide a broad look at a vast array of socially engaged practices that appear with increasing regularity in fields ranging from theater to activism, and urban planning to visual art.
The projects included in Living as Form were selected by a group of curators, writers, artists, and historians, including: Caron Atlas, Negar Azimi, Ron Bechet, Claire Bishop, Brett Bloom, Rashida Bumbray, Carolina Caycedo, Ana Paula Cohen, Common Room, Teddy Cruz, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Gridthiya Gaweewong, Hou Hanru, Stephen Hobbs and Marcus Neustetter, Shannon Jackson, Maria Lind, Chus Martínez, Sina Najafi, Marion von Osten, Ted Purves, Raqs Media Collective, Gregory Sholette, SUPERFLEX, Christine Tohme, Bik Van der Pol, and Sue Bell Yank.
