All Raise this Barn, West

MTAA

Artists MTAA will conduct an old-fashioned barn-raising using high tech techniques. The general public will group-decide (via the Internet) design, architectural, structural and aesthetic choices using a commercially-available barn-making kit as the starting point. The duo will then conduct this 21st century barn-raising with volunteers on Sept 11, 2010 in San Jose’s South Hall. Will it be structure? A deconstructed sculpture? Some combination thereof? That’s for the crowd to choose.

Project website where voting will take place: http://artbarn.mtaa.net

Keeping with the contemporary context, the 01SJ Biennial barn-building is the beta. The artists will next head east to Troy, NY to conduct the final barn-raising at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media & Performing Arts Center.
