In 2013 I was asked to curate a special project through Verge for the Crocker Art Museum. In collaboration with a group of Verge resident and local artists, volunteers, and interns we developed an installation for the Crocker's courtyard. The idea we developed took the form of a yurt, a nomadic dwelling intending to serve as a physical manifestation of the creativity that exists at Verge. In conjunction with the Yurt we wrote a manifesto to represent the 10 tenants essential to a successful art practice.
Yurt collaborators include - Alex Adan Richard Baumhofer Aleksander Bohnak Amanda Cook Ilah Cookston Nate Cordero Heather Crocker Roma Devanbu Kyle Doka Gioia Fonda Ianna Frisby Chelsea Greninger Makoto Hawkins Natalie Head Emily Masterson Linda Miller Cherilyn Naughton Andrew and Monica Patterson-Tutschka Interval Press Sebastian Quintero Manuel Fernando Rios Scott Soriano Tricia Talle Katie Thomas Susanna Tu
