do it, an exhibition that is now on view at the Mobile Museum of Art through July 1, has become the longest-running and most far-reaching exhibition ever to have happened – constantly evolving and generating evermore relevant new versions of itself. This exhibition has toured to venues from New York to Manchester, Budapest to Salt Lake City, Kosovo to Moscow, and now Mobile, Alabama. This exhibition, conceived and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), is unique in that each venue enlists its own community of artists to create work based on an original book of instructions – therefore no exhibition is the same from place to place and is always most relevant to the community where the work is created.

The Mobile Museum of Art collaborated with more than 40 local and regional artists to present do it in Mobile, and all of these artists created work on their own time, utilizing their own resources. In an effort to help curb theses artists costs, please consider donating in honor of our do it exhibition. Money raised will be distributed to artists to help cover their costs for material and labor.
