Rider Project in NYC

Filed in: News

rider-truck From like minded artists in New York:

The RIDER Project is a mobile art gallery and experimental exhibition space located in the back of a rented Ryder truck. Based in the social sculpture ideas of Joseph Beuys, the RIDER Project is staffed and funded by participating artists who act as an ever-evolving collaborative, recombining into a different form with each exhibition. Using Guerilla tactics of social intervention, reduced cost and maximum visibility, the mobile Rider Project brings artwork directly to people, circumventing economic market structures and cultural constraints. Participating artists create the form and culture of each exhibition and interject them into neighborhoods stimulating cultural dialogue and a participatory Socratic space. Neighborhood residents interact with exhibiting artists engaging in a vital exchange of thoughts, feelings and experiences, forging new cultural links. The RIDER Project delivers art to New York City through a dynamic akin to blood circulating through an organism. As blood provides oxygen and essential nutrients, so art offers new ideas and experiences, and revitalizes the social body through inspiration.
