do it (outside)

UPDATE: I've decided to refund everyone's payment for today, due to the rain. I STILL PLAN TO GO (I have a raincoat!) - so you can join me if you like, or not. Either way, your payment will be refunded. 

Socrates is open 365 days a year from 10am until sunset - admission is free.

We'll be seeing two exhibits - do it (outside) and Folly.

In collaboration with Independent Curators International, Socrates Sculpture Park presents do it (outside), an exhibition conceived of and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist. With historical antecedents in Dada and Fluxus, do it (outside) is a selection of artists' instructions interpreted by other artists, performers, community groups, and the public. In the last 20 years, versions of do it have been presented in over 50 venues worldwide, giving new meaning to the concept of the “Exhibition in Progress.”

Folly is the second residency and exhibition designed to explore the intersections between architecture, design, and sculpture through an interpretation of the architectural folly. Especially popular among the Romantics of the 18th and 19th centuries, architectural follies are small-scale structures, which often have no discernible purpose, that are placed within a garden or landscape as a means to draw the eye to specific points or to frame a view. The folly is a perfect subject for architects to investigate materially, spatial interaction, and concepts about our built environment.

    Karen, this sounds terrific! Is there a connection to Noguchi Museum garden event on Sun also? Would there be time to see it as well? (11am - 6pm) " Exploring the role of interface in idea generation by translating the conductive energy of humans into music" http://datagarden.org/6535/data-garden-personified-at-noguchi-museum/ — at Noguchi Museum.

      Hi JB: I'm not planning to head over to Noguchi myself, but it is very close to Socrates, so anyone who wants to head over there afterward can certainly do so. I've been there recently and it's lovely.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
