I have been excited to be a part of this project with the Floating Lab Collective.  From the Floating Lab Collective’s project website,

“The ReMuseum is a participatory, mobile experiment that investigates museum processes such as collecting, displaying, valuing and commodifying objects…”(visit site)

Inside Corcoran

Working with community members in DC neighborhoods such as Deanwood, Brentwood, Petworth, and Anacostia, the Floating Lab Collective “mobile curator” helped identify objects of personal value to that were then replicated on large and small scales.  Objects and their oral histories are displayed inside a re-purposed taco truck and inside the Corcoran Gallery of Art.  Visitors to the ReMuseum are invited to redistribute small, casted replicas into their home communities.

Outside Corcoran

Curated by Laura Roulet, the project is part of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities’s 5×5 public arts initiative, “twenty-five groundbreaking temporary public art installations that will be installed concurrently throughout the District of Columbia.” (DCCAH website).

For more information about the ReMuseum and to feed back into the project with your own images of objects in new places, visit www.floatinglabcollective.com.

I am pleased to be a 2012-13 recipient of the VMFA Fellowship Grant in the Professional Category with collaborators Edgar Endress , Peter Lee, and Sean Watkins.  This relates to work with the Floating Lab Collective whose projects in new media, research and performance  engage ideas around society, art, and public space.  I am grateful to all the members of the collective whose hard work and dedication has helped realize incredible projects.

From the VMFA:  “During the VMFA Fellowship Program’s 72 years, the museum has awarded more than $4.6 million and 1,174 awards to Virginia’s art students and professional artists. VMFA received 755 applications, which marks the highest number of applicants in the program’s history.”

About SHIFT from VSA:

“Every life contains moments of change. Shift seeks to investigate those moments that alter the direction of a person’s path and create a new reality. Through the artwork, each artist shares a moment in time when a shift in their landscape occurred– it may be personal or professional, mental or physical, internal or external.”
