Jillian McDonald’s new exhibition Alone Together in the Dark is about to open! Exhibition dates are Oct. 5, 2009 – Jan 9, 2010.

Jillian will be  in residence Oct. 5 – Nov. 14, 2009.  As with all of our Social Studies projects, we encourage everyone to come to the museum to meet the artist and work directly with her, to influence and help create her project! It’s free to participate, and you never know who you’re going to meet…

Also- join in our free conversations with the artist and curator John Spiak:

Friday Conversations @11 – Oct. 9 (The Start)

Friday Conversations @11 – Nov. 13 (The End)

Social Studies challenges the traditional exhibition format by opening with an empty gallery and an artist in residence who considers social interaction a crucial part of their art-making.  Vistors are invited into the gallery to participate with the artist to create objects and installations, or to observe and question the process.  Working through public/private partnerships with multiple ASU departments, schools and community organizations, the project brings museum visitors into the creative process, invites extensive collaboration with community and university students, and emphasizes the museum’s role as a vital gatehring place.

This is our fifth Social Studies project.
