The MUAC has invited thirty artists to 'occupy' this space - over the course of three months, each will work for two days - with projects that will bring together members of specific communities as well as the general museum-going public to participate in a aesthetic experience open to dialogue and collaboration.  At the end of the process, the collectively-created pieces and documents will be on display for one month.

Art can give rise to teaching and learning experiences that lead to the creation of knowledge and awareness.  Art teaches through experience.  It doesn't offer tangible knowledge that can be transmitted in an obvious, graphic way but rather communicates its own subjectivity through the use of intersubjectivity, by sharing its perceptions with others. It creates commonplace expressions reflecting the human capacity for feeling and emotion, thus 'making the invisible visible'.


Cultivating our Garden of Academus

As was the case with the home of Plato's Academy, an olive grove dedicated to Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, this exhibition creates a collective space to generate communication between artists and the public. This space contextualizes the work it creates through pedagogical activities intended to influence and encourage the development of art as a medium of knowledge and learning.  It also opens the institution of art to society as a whole and introduce educational institutions to the work that artists do.
