Nomadic Art | Made To Move

Posted on: Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Hibernation 01 | dried vegetation, recycled fiber, thread (Abigail Doan, 2008)

I am excited to share news that the nomadic art project, Made To Move is officially underway. The first stop on the exhibition's tour schedule is Prospect Park Residence in Brooklyn.

Made To Move is designed to take art out of its institutional settings to reach a variety of under-served communities interested in learning more about contemporary art. In addition to experiencing artworks close up, viewers will be able to learn about the artists, their lives, and the inspiration behind their work. Curated by Leah Gauthier with the involvement of 3-art, this traveling (nomadic) project is a representative cross-section of the art world today, and combines portability with diverse media, topical issues, and wide-ranging approaches to art making. The curators’ goal is to bring art — and the ideas behind it — to communities that might not otherwise have access to it. 

An art exhibition that fits into a suitcase and does not subscribe to the dictates of the art world (market)? Yes, this is possible. I just cannot wait for my fiber form to be out on the road, connecting with folks who might never make it to the big city, a museum or gallery opening, or have access to work that might stimulate new dialogues. 

Small is beautiful and often quite powerful, too.
