From the UICA’s current offering, Urbanity, a multidisciplinary series investigating the complex dynamics of living peaceably and sustainably together.
Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts, Grand Rapids, 13 April — 5 July 2012
The contemporary urban center is amidst a renaissance, people returning from the suburbs, seeking a more communal and efficient lifestyle. The artists of Urbanity each investigate the dynamics of co-habitation within a city landscape. This exhibition which celebrates the 35th year of the Urban Institute of Contemporary Arts, asks viewers to think about what it means in 2012 to live together as a metropolitan community.
In addition to the exhibition there are lectures, workshops, and films.
