Actions: What You Can Do With the City
OCT 16, 2009 - MAR 13, 2010

Actions: What You Can Do With the City presents 99 actions that instigate positive change in contemporary cities around the world. Seemingly common activities such as walking, playing, recycling, and gardening are pushed beyond their usual definition by the international architects, artists, and collectives featured in the exhibition. Their experimental interactions with the urban environment show the potential influence personal involvement can have in shaping the city and challenge fellow residents to participate.

On view at the Graham Foundation Madlener House from October 16, 2009 through March 13, 2010, Actions: What You Can Do With the City is organized by the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal and is curated by CCA Director and Chief Curator Mirko Zardini and CCA Curator for Contemporary Architecture Giovanna Borasi.
