About do it
What would happen if an exhibition never stopped? Since it began in 1993, with this question being asked by Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier, do it has become the longest-running and most far-reaching exhibition ever to have happened – constantly evolving and generating evermore relevant new versions of itself. do it has toured to venues from New York to Manchester, Budapest to Salt Lake City, and Kosovo to Moscow. Mobile Museum of Art presents its own reinterpretation of do it with the help of regional artists and community groups.
Join us before for a gallery talk with do it artists Brendon Cooke, Adam R. Forrester, and Lauren Woods, who will discuss their work for the exhibition, the art of film-making, and the role of performance in new media art >>
