HEXOPOLIS: Now open for participatory art! / 28 February 2015
I’m showing my thoughts and interpretations of hexagons and the city at Pages | Leeds International Artists’ Book Fair, exhibition continues until 22 March.
I’m also opening up my research project for crowd-sourced ideas and contributions.
Join in the public participation at The Tetley, see venue website for access details. At the opening (6-9pm, Fri 6 March) there will be paper crafts, making hexagon love letters and hexaflexagons.
Or you can participate via the Hexopolis callout at CuratorSpace.
It’s intended to be open and unprescriptive. You can either print the downloadable sheet as a basis, or just draw a hexagon on whatever surface suits your idea best. It doesn’t have to be a regular hexagon. No need to send in your original, a photo or scan is fine.
It’s about collecting and sharing ideas, different interpretations, and connections. It’s a Hexopolis in itself: people freely contributing observations about hexagons and cities.
