NURTUREart is pleased to present: …Is This Free?, its 2012 Summer exhibition series.
Curated by Marco Antonini, this project will consist of three exhibitions, featuring artworks, ephemera and publications that have been mostly conceived and produced to be freely distributed. Historically relevant artworks, ephemera and publications loaned from private collections will be presented side by side with contemporary work by emerging artists, including a series of project-specific artworks commissioned to emerging artists. Community high-school students and members of our audience will be involved in the production of open-source artworks and instructional pieces, producing work that will ultimately become part of the three exhibitions.
The program will span the whole summer, running from July 6 to September 22, 2012.
Please Note: The exhibition has an incremental dynamic, with new artworks unveiled at every opening, adding up to to an expanding gallery installation…
