5x5 Participatory Provocations opened at Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, NY on January 14, 2017 and was on view until March 12. Curated by Julia van den Hout, Kevin Erickson, and Kyle May, the exhibition argues for participatory criticism and the engagement of architecture in a series of significant issues we face today, from a growing income gap, immigration, and globalization, to technology’s impact on our lives, surveillance, and power. The exhibition features models by 25 young American architects and was previously on view at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL, the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative in Cleveland, OH, and the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI.
5x5 Participatory Provocations will be on view at Omi International Arts Center in the Newmark Gallery of the Charles B. Benenson Center.
