There’s only one more week to take in Creative Time’s ambitious Living as Form exhibition, on view through October 16 at the Essex Street Market.
Chief Curator of Creative Time Nato Thompson enlisted 25 other curators and collectives to bring together over 100 artists and projects from the field of socially-engaged art. Throughout the exhibition, the historic Essex Street space is host to experiments on how to re/present social practice, with an emphasis on engagement with the archive. Displays range from photocopied documentation and video to SUPERFLEX’s “Power Toilet” to Time/Bank’s temporary restaurant.
Among the artists included are Russian collectives Chto Delat? (with their sandwich-man project) and the contended and contentious VOINA (here represented through videos of previous actions.)
The exhibition is open from 12-8pm, Thursday through Sunday, and is free to the public.
