Detroit Institute of Arts, 2012-2013

Design of two-phase participatory exhibition, gallery layout, graphic design, labels, and fabrication.

Eight paintings that had been tucked away for years in DIA storage were chosen for conservation and further study. Research unearthed fascinating new information, but only a small sliver of it could appear on a label when each painting went on exhibit. In this vanguard exhibition, visitors were invited to decide what stories to tell about the paintings in the exhibition, by voting with colorful mini-pompoms. After the votes were tallied, Hidden Treasures reopened as a regular exhibition with labels featuring the winning stories.

Design, custom interactive software, custom media display, and installation. 

This cutting-edge contemporary exhibition explores the idea of art as an interpretation of, and a catalyst for, peace. Over 80 artists, including Marina Abramovic, Laurie Anderson, Richard Avedon, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Chuck Close, El Anatsui, Jenny Holzer, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov, Anish Kapoor, Enrique Martinez Celaya, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Pat Steir, and Bill Viola, presented artworks that expressed their perspectives on the Dalai Lama and his endeavors.

During the exhibition’s run at the San Antonio Museum of Art, visitors were invited to share their own images and text messages of peace. Each contribution was then added to an ongoing mix that was displayed on two large flat panel monitors in the lobby. Flutter & Wow Museum Projects designed and programmed the unique set of technologies that enabled visitor contributions to be gathered, formatted, sent and displayed in the videos.

Audio tour design and production.

From Op Art in the 1960s to the current explosion of dazzling abstraction, this nationally touring exhibition traces the development of a “psychedelic sensibility” in the art of the past 40 years. Organized by the San Antonio Museum of Art, Psychedelic showcases figurative and abstract works characterized by intense color and vivid imagery. The artists include such modern masters as Frank Stella, Deborah Remington, Robert Williams, Fred Tomaselli, Victor Vasarely and Ray Rapp.

Flutter & Wow Museum Projects produced the audio tour that accompanies this exhibition, featuring the voices of many of the exhibiting artists, and curator David Rubin.
