"The Art Mall: A Social Space"
May 16 - June 28 1992
“Artists were invited to develop a variety of programs based on the concept of the American shopping mall, an arena that typically combines leisure and consumption. This multidisciplinary group project explored the nature of public space as a setting for community interaction, and as a meeting ground for artists and ‘shoppers.’ Artists Nancy Dwyer and Alexander Ku, along with architect Jeffry Murphy, transformed the Museum’s galleries into a public space for interactive programming. Proposals were selected by a programming team of members from within and outside of the Museum.”
