Occupations: Art Takes Up Space 

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 4 2014
It is not until we notice something extraordinary that we recognize the blandness of our surroundings. The public, site-specific video installation Occupations: Art Takes Up Space calls attention to the capabilities of urban spaces to function as exhibition venues, urging us to rethink our physical and psychological relationship to public environments. Curated by Anuradha Vikram in partnership with BLOCK Gallery, the group exhibit employs the windows of storefronts on 9th Street between Broadway and Washington Street as gallery walls to feature works by established artists Freddy Chandra, Allan de Souza, Desirée Holman, Ranu Mukherjee, Jerome Reyes, and José Carlos Teixeira. Video installations are projected onto the windows from inside, such that the walls of nearby buildings seem to come alive as you walk the block. To accompany your tour, there is a free podcast available online that contextualizes the pieces and artists. Although none of the works are extraordinary as standalone statements, they collectively offer an imaginative experience that is worth taking a detour through town to engage in.
