This exhibition has been reconceived by the students in the course "Empathy Academy: Social Practice and the Problem of Objects" (ART 3799) in response to the works by Ernesto Neto, Matthew “Levee” Chavez, and Rirkrit Tiravanija previously on view. Through July 30, the students’ participatory installation, "What is left is felt," informed by their study of institutional collecting and exhibition strategies, will be on view.
A crowd-sourced still life of red items acts as an ongoing invitation for visitors to participate. Bring your own red items (no larger than can fit in a backpack), hang it in the installation, and fill out a corresponding tag. After the exhibition ends, all objects in good condition will be gathered and donated to local charities.
