Mildred’s Lane Swarming with Order of the Third Bird

Saturday, October 20, 2012, 12:00–4:00 p.m.

The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine

These frequent visits by collaborating artists, writers, and critics at Mildred's Lane invite the public to participate in collective tasks and discussions, from hosting food-related events to explorations of creative processes related to the visual arts, writing, biology, and more. All Swarmings take place at MoMA Studio: Common Senses on an impromptu basis during opening hours, unless otherwise noted.

Indiscreet associates of the Order of the Third Bird (including D. Graham Burnett, Jeff Dolven, and Sal Randolph) engage in a practice of Sustained Attention to a Made Thing. Visitors are welcome to stand with members of the Order and join in giving generous attention to the work. The Attention Lab is part guerrilla seminar and part meditative and kinetic practicum. A discipline of the senses is pursued.

In conjunction with the exhibition MoMA Studio: Common Senses

This event is free and participation is on a first-come first-served basis.
