MAP 2013

I sent just off some info re- the next OccuLibrary incarnations for the Dallas-Fort Worth-wide MAP 2013 exhibition, so I'll share them with you here.

Those incarnations will include:
  1. Secret Sociality, an installation of an intimate, partially-“hidden” library of books and other materials relevant to art and social issues.  This will be in Eastfield College's main gallery along with works by two other, internationally-known artists.

  2. Art as Social Wormhole, a reading group/“artificial M.F.A.” course in classic and recent texts on aesthetic issues relating to art's potential to speak to or influence political realities. The group’s home base will be The Reading Room, with some meetings at venues exhibiting art works relevant to the readings.

  3. A Yankee Doodles Sing-A-Lot Sing-A-Long program, in which kids engage in activities and learn songs relating to themes of historical or social interest. 
All events are free and open to the public.

Exhibitions and events will run Oct. 1 - Nov. 24, except that the Art as Social Wormhole reading group will continue for the equivalent of one semester's readings.

See MAP 2013 for more info about other projects included in the exhibition.

For more info about the OccuLibrary's projects (volunteers welcome!), please contact us via a comment (we won't publish comments containing your e-mail or other personal info).

OccuLibrary "Open Source" Materials

If you like the OccuLibrary's mission, we invite you to contact us, or to re-create any of the incarnations we've come up with, or to invent your own.  You are welcome to use the materials we've developed:
A two-page information sheet about the project. 
The script with quotations from great artists and thinkers that we invited people to read for the camera in the GlamROccuLibrarymentary Trailer Shoot.
Print-ready PDF's of the poster-sized sandwich boards worn by one of the OccuLibrarians
The mini-zine we distributed (we're currently tweaking this but will add a link soon).
Some of the songs and other info gathered for the Yankee Doodles kids' program (I've requested these from the organizers and will add the link when I get them).
If you do create an incarnation, please tell us about it!
