ABOUT DO IT: What would happen if an exhibition never stopped? In 1993, originating curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier posed a question that turned into the longest-running and most far-reaching exhibition ever to have happened. do it began in Paris as an invitation to 12 artists to propose artworks based on written “scores” or instructions that can be openly interpreted every time they were presented. In the 20 years since Obrist, Boltanski and Lavier mused over the potential of “scores,” or written instructions by artists, do it has been re-interpreted, rearranged, disassembled and reconfigured in 60+ venues worldwide; including nearly 400 artists from across the globe. do it will be on view at the Mobile Museum of Art January 26 – July 1 2018.
