Opening Friday, October 16th, from 6PM - 9PM

On view through Wednesday, November 18th

In Search of the Mundane, organized by Randall Szott and theInstitute for Community Understanding Between Art and The Everyday (InCUBATE) will feature extended conversation and programming about the arts of living. This exhibition’s activities focus on mundane life, drawing upon the spirit of Allan Kaprow, Michel de Certeau, Jane Addams, John Dewey, and others. These artists, activists, and thinkers will serve as a jumping off point to consider what constitutes “the good life.” In addition to considering the perceived divide between art and everyday life, we hope to highlight how ordinary creative strategies in day to day life might enhance one’s living conditions. What might mark the difference between thinking of art as a career and living life creatively? Associated programming will bring together a range of people engaged with this question to share their own strategies for artful living.
