Robert C. Tannen | BOX-CITY
Feb 07, 2020 — May 16, 2020
The exhibition Robert C. Tannen|BOX-CITY is an interactive exhibition using cardboard boxes as to-scale models that allow museum visitors to explore urban design concepts as they relate to collaboration and civic discourse. The monumental work of art for which the exhibition is titled will consist primarily of sixty 48" x 40" x 48" triple wall boxes visitors can use to create their own metropolis. Tannen is focusing on cardboard boxes as an art-making material because it is so relatable. He is also interested in exploring cardboard as a potential building material in a future with more people and fewer resources to go around.
