From the X-Initiative Press Release
UPCOMING CLOSING EVENT – BRING YOUR OWN ART – FEBRUARY 3rd:
Please save the date for our closing event celebrating the end of X Initiative: Join us on FEBRUARY 3rd for BRING YOUR OWN ART, a 24-hour event inspired by Walter Hopps’s Thirty-Six Hours, an event that the legendary curator organized in the Museum of Temporary Art in Washington, DC in 1978, where Hopps installed anything that anybody brought to the museum. Artists, galleries, curators, collectors and enthusiasts are invited to site and install art at X Initiative, which will be open for viewers and participants for 24 consecutive hours. BRING YOUR OWN ART is a temporary occupation which mirrors X’s activity for the last twelve months. A gathering for the closing of X initiative, BYOA offers a DIY platform where any kind of art can be exhibited at this historic site. X Initiative will collaborate with Adam Simon of Fine Art Adoption Network (FAAN) for this event. FAAN is an online network ( http://www.fineartadoption.net ) that uses a gift economy to connect artists and potential collectors (adopters). Details to follow.
