do it (outside)

  • Socrates Sculpture Park (map)

Conceived and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist
Presented in collaboration with Independent Curators International

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." This presentation will be the first in New York City and the first completely outdoors in a public art venue.
