To be sure, everyone agrees that certain gestures repeated every day, such as opening doors or filling glasses, are quite real; but these gestures are at such a trivial level of reality ...
The use of everyday life, in the sense of a consumption of lived time, is governed by the reign of scarcity: scarcity of free time and scarcity of possible uses of this free time. Just as the accelerated history of our time is the history of accumulation and industrialization, so the backwardness and conservative tendencies of everyday life are products of the laws and interests that have presided over this industrialization. Everyday life has until now resisted the historical. This represents first of all a verdict against the historical insofar as it has been the heritage and project of an exploitive society. The extreme poverty of conscious organization and creativity in everyday life reflects the fundamental need for unconsciousness and mystification in a society of exploitation and alienation.

Please Touch the Art

leverages art and technology to address equity, diversity and inclusion through a community building public art exhibition. The project will challenge perceptions around art making accessibility in today’s digital age by utilizing the ubiquitous “selfie” in conjunction with the more traditional self-portrait art form – both of which will be displayed side by side throughout the MCA galleries. The project includes a series of free workshops and a traditional call for art and culminates in an exhibit at the Mosesian Center for the Arts. The exhibition will take place in all three of our gallery spaces located throughout our 30,000sq ft facility and will extend through the community with the installation of large-scale posters and banners designed to feature the broad array of faces on view in the exhibition.
