> DESCRIPTION

Existing somewhere between Conceptual art and "social sculpture," Ben Kinmont's artwork takes the form of gesture, conversation, and promise, as well as the things that support and document such acts: contracts, transcripts, prints, shared meals. This exhibition in the Koret Visitor Education Center presents ephemeral and archival material related to three of Kinmont's projects — the interview-based Moveable Type No Documenta and On Becoming Something Else, as well the exhibition Promised Relations; or, thoughts on a few artists' contracts— that weigh the boundaries between art and the practice of everyday life.
