ITP Alums Participate in SF MOMA show


ITP Alumni Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Daniel Phiffer and Mushon Zer-Aviv are all showing work at the San Francisco MOMA in a show called:

“The Art of Participation: 1950 to Now” from November 8, 2008 – February 8, 2009

Looking back nearly 60 years across a wide spectrum of genres and media, this thematic exhibition examines how artists have engaged audiences as essential collaborators in the art-making process. Works by more than 40 artists will be on view, from early conceptual projects by such pioneers as John Cage, Lygia Clark, Dan Graham, and Hans Haacke to contemporary pieces by Jochen Gerz, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Lynn Hershman Leeson, and Erwin Wurm, among others. Well-known examples of participatory art set the stage for a handful of restaged historic installations and new commissions that invite the public to take an active role. Revealing how artists pioneered many of the collaborative tactics associated with the Web 2.0 zeitgeist, The Art of Participation will change form and content as visitors contribute — both at the museum and online.
