Assembler is a series of conversations that occur in conjunction with 1708's exhibitions. Artists, curators, and art and art history professors engage the audience in the process of examining content in Contemporary art, starting with the most basic question: What am I looking at? Assembler creates a dialogue based on the premise that the simplest answer —i.e. "I see a blue square on a black background"—is a valid starting point to understanding a work of art. From here, participants work together to assemble the meaning of the art work shown in the gallery.
Assembler welcomes and encourages all levels of experience to participate!
