ABOUT UNLEASHING

Unleashing is a college-wide exhibition from April 1 through May 31, 2018, featuring site-specific, multi-media art installations that highlight the concepts of American philosopher Maxine Greene, whose idea of “social imagination” provides the ground for the works on display. More than 28 international artists explore the underlying theme and respond to the historic building of Teachers College. The project is a sequel to Doing and Undergoing in 2013 and accompanied by a video guide leading visitors to each of the 21 sites. Unleashing is directed by Richard Jochum and curated by Livia Alexander and Isin Onol. The project is made possible by the Office of the Provost.
