“Open Document” is posed to address current exhibition practices of art institutions which disallow public viewing of the installation process. Typically, an exhibition and its planning stages are hidden behind closed doors. “Open Document” will make the entire process available for public viewing, along with extensive documentation of participant interaction, exhibition planning, and installation. The “open” concept also responds to current trends in politics, business, and other industries in which transparency has become both an enemy and ally, requiring new policies on documentation and the distribution of information.

Participating artists include: Janice Gomez, Fatima Hoang, Tucker Neel, Chris Oatey, Jenny Yurshansky, JEFF & GORDON (Jeff Foye, Gordon Winiemko)
