The Art of Dwelling

Concurrently with Across the Great Divide, 516 ARTS will host a related exhibition in the downstairs gallery organized by guest curator Erin Elder titled Worlds Outside This One, featuring a group of emerging international artists and innovators responding to the legacy of homesteading, squatting, hermitage and fort building. The exhibition addresses the urge for momentary acts of self-determination, creating hand-hewn spaces in the gallery and interactive experiences for visitors, as well as showcasing blueprints, shelters, journals and maps.

Looking to those who create ad-hoc communities and makeshift structures through art practice as well as daily life, this exhibition illuminates the productive tension between Do-It- Yourself autonomy and shared notions of Utopia. Many of the featured artists in Worlds Outside This One are also architects, philosophers, entrepreneurs, urban planners, economists and community builders.
