Open University Projects Blog

Our new blog is up and running. Open University is a transdisciplinary collaborative project that was born in Brooklyn, NY sometime in the early 2000′s. We have been hosting and designing public events and situations that address contemporary culture and social issues for about a decade now. OU collaborators also have other projects within the fields of art & social practice and academic research, and we work in fields that range from law, anthropology, media studies, art, psychology, and critical studies. New OU public projects are in the works, so please check our Projects Blog for updates and other relevant material.

Curation as Social Practice

Chain Letter at Shoshana Wayne Gallery:

This exhibition is rooted in the ideals of inclusion, and highlights the social nature of the art world.  It is the hope of the curators that the response will be vast and that the artists represented will be an exponential representation of all artists that are currently working and admired by their peers.
Chain Letter mimics communication today; and the way in which information is passed.  The outcome will be a testament to the power of connectivity within society at present.
