Art, Environment, Action! is a creative teaching laboratory and environmental “artshop.” Bringing together artists, designers, architects, dancers, chefs and scientists who work at the intersections of art, pedagogy and ecology, it invites the public to join them to transform and activate the gallery. Designed as a “toybox” of possibilities, the program relies on participation. Visitors may engage through workshops, off-site explorations, walks, movement, radio, dialogue and interactive exchanges, encouraging their active participation as makers and thinkers. Curated by Radhika Subramaniam.

Artists in residence who are leading workshops include Beehive Design Collective, Cotard Syndicate (Toby Heys, Stefani Bardin and Siddharth Ramakrishnan), Beatriz da Costa, Leila Nadir + Cary Peppermint/Ecoarttech, Futurefarmers, Michael Mandiberg in collaboration with Wikipedia Illustrated/Galia Offri and Mushon Zer-Aviv, Jennifer Monson and Kate Cahill, Beverly Naidus, OPENrestaurant with Jerome Waag, Public Laboratory for Open Technology and Science, Red76, Stephanie Rothenberg (REV-), Jill Sigman/thinkdance, Tattfoo Tan, and Trade School.
