Curator Mathieu Copeland discusses the poetics of interstitial, neutral and otherwise overlooked off-spaces—and off-times—of museums and galleries. He envisages how they can be activated and seen anew through a variety of perspectives, and thus subvert the traditional role of exhibitions and renew the way they are perceived.
On April 17, 18, and 19, look out for Copeland and three of his art/performance students from Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD—Genève)—as they activate "non-spaces," offering to Museum visitors the opportunity to experience artworks through the voice.
April 17, 5–6 p.m.: Cullman mezzanine, 4 W. 54 Street

April 19, 12:30–1:30 p.m. and 3–4 p.m.: Bauhaus Lounge, third floor and MoMA Sculpture Garden
