Title: …Is This Free?
Published by NURTUREart + Marco Antonini
Curated by Marco Antonini, this project consisted of three exhibitions, featuring artworks, ephemera and publications that have been mostly conceived and produced to be freely distributed. Historically relevant artworks, ephemera and publications loaned from private collections were presented side by side with contemporary work by emerging artists, including a series of project-specific artworks commissioned to emerging artists. Community high-school students and members of our audience were involved in the production of open-source artworks and instructional pieces, producing work that will ultimately become part of the three exhibitions.
The program spanned the whole summer, running from July 6 to September 22, 2012.
