MMofA: do it

do it began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. They were curious to see what would happen if they started an exhibition that could constantly generate new versions of itself. To test the idea, they invited 12 artists to propose artworks based on written “scores” or instructions that can be openly interpreted every time they are presented. The instructions were then translated into 9 different languages and circulated internationally as a book.

Location: Mobile Museum of Art

MAC March Exhibitions

This March, the Mobile Arts Council will feature the national Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show, “HUMANIMAL” by Joseph Smith, and “Facets” by Kristin Dunreath Harris 

The Spanish Moss Miniature Art Show is a national competition and sale, presented by the Alabama Miniature Art Society. The show features drawings and paintings from some of the top artists working in miniatures today, with no artwork larger than 25 square inches (5x5inches).  

“HUMANIMAL” is a mixed-media exhibition of sculptures and paintings by Joseph Smith. His exhibition focuses on the relationship of humankind and animals, drawing parallels to the similarities in their characteristics. 

“Facets” is a new watercolor exhibition by Kristin Dunreath Harris. Her paintings are painstakingly detailed, capturing each faceted shape of every carefully drawn jewel – creating an illusion of reflection, depth, and a three-dimensional feel in her works. 

See these artists works throughout the month of March during our gallery hours, between 9 AM - 5 PM on weekdays. Meet the artists on ArtWalk night, March 9, between 6 – 9 PM. 

Location: Mobile Arts Council
