Common Space features ten international artists from New York, Chicago and Miami that dismantle and re-envision social space as a site of artistic production. Architecture, cartography, and language emerge as subjects and methods to respond to the distribution of space as well as the production of identity, meaning, and power therein. Breaking with the notion of a gallery as a static presentation, the exhibition bridges the gallery with studios and common rooms at Oolite Arts and integrates residency and visiting artist cultures. Site-specific installations and activations throughout the duration of the exhibition will provide prompts for viewer participation and engagement.
