Art in Use
How can art and museums be useful in today’s communities?
A year-long program, Art in Use poses this question through a series of projects presented on Floor 4. New commissions and public events ask: Can art motivate social, political and cultural change? What meaningful role does art play in our lives? How can we use it as a tool?
The Art in Use program is supported by an adaptable set of furniture elements —“an office of useful art” designed by Adrian Blackwell. This “office” will host workshops, conversations and events that explore the utility of art.
Art in Use has been conceived in conversation with artist Tania Bruguera, the Association of Useful Art and local and international artists. An online platform of socially engaged forms of artistic practice collated by this association can be found at www.arte-util.org.
