We are really excited to announce our newest project: Made to Move! It’s a traveling exhibition of small art works by over 20 American artists, and will tour the United States and be installed in a variety of unexpected or non-traditional spaces throughout 2012. The exhibition is designed to take art out of its institutional settings and 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.
Each artist contributed to the exhibition an artwork measuring five inches or smaller. Made to Move 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. All of the Made to Move installations will be documented here, and will also include visits to artists’ studios, links to their work, and interviews about their processes. The curators’ goal is to bring art — and the ideas behind it — to communities that might not otherwise have access to it.
