2012 - 2013
The Museum of Non Participation is a fictional museum by London-based artists Karen Mirza and Brad Butler. I co-produced and co-curated the the US debut of this ongoing project at the Walker Art Center, for which Mirza and Butler transformed the gallery into a multilayered installation and evolving social space. Incorporated as a central feature of the exhibition, a live production set served as the backdrop for the artists and members of the Twin Cites community to workshop, rehearse, and stage one of Bertolt Brecht’s short “learning plays” — The Exception and the Rule, a tale of corruption, exploitation, and injustice. The project also included publishing Acts of Definition and Redefinition, a series of commissioned texts by constellation of MoNP collaborators defining "non participation" in their own terms.
