An exhibition turned artist collective aimed at cultivating discussion and intervention in an expanded public field.
“The WiPA project aims to transcend the limitations of traditional art perception by presenting alternative strategies for public art-making. No public space offers complete freedom or accessibility. The inherent physical and social constructions of space put limitations on who may participate and to what extent they can practice agency. Interventions of public art have the potential to reach beyond traditional art form and passive perception by providing participants with the possibility to investigate the physical, social, and psychological relationships of the urban environment. Indeed, experimentation with non-traditional practices offers the possibility of discovering new ways to appropriate and reshape public space. If nothing else, we hope to cultivate fresh insights and engaging experiences through the creative disruption of everyday life.” – Project Statement, November 2005
