The group exhibition\, You Are Breathing In It! Alternative Art Practices\, is an investigation of alternative artistic processes in contemporary art\, hi ghlighting artists from: Riverside\; Los Angeles\; San Jose\; Chicago\; Tij uana\, Mexico\; and San Juan\, Puerto Rico. The exhibition features photogr aphs\, installations\, films\, music\, drawings\, and sculptures. This grou ndbreaking exhibition at the Riverside Art Museum examines and redefines th e concept and space of the ‘artist’s studio’ as a unique platform for devel oping dialogues\, relationships\, and greater community involvement through questions relating to: public space\, education\, civic engagement\, viole nce\, identity\, and community. While many situate the site of artistic pro duction in a traditional studio art space\, these artists redefine the conc ept and use the streets\, apartments/homes\, nightclubs\, or vehicles. Othe r artists in the exhibition appropriate spaces such as restaurants\, storef ronts\, and other public spaces of gathering to make art\, intervene\, and lead discussions.

\n

An expansive two-ga llery exhibition with ongoing activities and companion events\, You Are Breathing In it! presents a selection of varied and interactive media that travel far beyond the realm of formal aesthetics. The underlying obje ctive of the works in the exhibit is to serve as a vehicle for engaging dis cussion\, diversification\, and cultivating meaningful relationships and ex periences in an art context that is at once playful and commanding. Accompa nying events and activities during the exhibition’s run will include: stude nt-led discussions with Puerto Rican artist Christopher Rivera and his co-curatorial-based project\, “Cave In\,” that showcased artis ts inside a cave\; a student-based curatorial internship project\; art\, wr iting\, and performance workshops\, such as Evelyn Serranos’ collective\, NOMAD Lab\, a community-based art project which designs and implements free art workshops that address the rise in cr iminal activity\; a film screening and panel discussion by Tijuana-based me dia art collective Bulbo and their appropriation of a space and the twelve-step program format of the Alcoholics Anonymous g roup to lead discussions\; an interactive mural hosted by Mobil e Mural Lab\; We Woke The World Festival\, a living monument to the women's suffrage movement\, initiated by < strong>Ari Kletzky and centered on a participatory sing-along of a historic Suffragist-era song\; an interactive listening workshop by Elana Mann based on her project in collaboration with musician J uliana Snapper\, The People’s Microphony Camerata (PMC)\, an exper imental choir exploring ideas of listening through sound\, voice\, and body .
