The Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) (2010) is comprised of two large-scale, interactive sculptures that are “activated” by a mobile exhibitions program. MAP brings together Peter Foucault’s Fal-Core Van and Chris Treggiari’s Mobile Store and will appear in locations throughout the San Fernando Corridor. MAP will create an autonomous exhibition space, an artistic research lab where a cross pollination of mediums and genres can occur, be accessible to the public and create strong bonds with the San Jose community. MAP events will include film screenings, visual art, performance art, live music, culinary art, and will feature local talent from throughout the Bay Area. In essence, we will build a temporary, creative microcosm where community and creativity can intersect and flourish. In a world where we are becoming more insular with advanced technologies, our events hope to bring residents together having positive interactions with neighbors, and their neighborhood.
MAP is part of the San Jose Public Art Program’s San Fernando Corridor Project and will be happening throughout San Jose from June-September 2010.
