Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus
June 10, 2010 - August 7, 2010

Eyebeam Art + Technology Center, in collaboration with Upgrade! NY and Not An Alternative, is pleased to present Re:Group: Beyond Models of Consensus, an exhibition which examines models of participation and participation as a model in art and activism.

Re:Group proposes that with participation now a dominant paradigm, structuring social interaction, art, activism, the architecture of the city, and the economy, we are all integrated into participatory structures whether we want to be or not. The exhibition showcases work that subverts existing systems or envisions new alternatives to the ways in which individuals can take part, or choose not to take part, in social and cultural life.
