On Procession

May 2-August 10, 2008


On Procession constitutes the first organized thematic exhibition of public parades as expanded exhibition spaces and tropes in contemporary artworks. With presence in and outside of the museum building, the exhibition explores pressing themes about representation, spectatorship, collaboration and sponsorship which are raised by the recent surge of art parades and processions. The exhibition presents a selection of contemporary artworks that incorporate public processionals to explore issues of history, identity, and visibility, with videos, photographs, drawings, floats, banners, and other ephemera and documentations from recent art parades.
