January – April 2014
do it began as a conversation between artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier and Curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, who was interested in the idea of an open-ended exhibition format that was flexible enough to transform with each location and enactment. To test the concept, Obrist invited 12 artists to submit instructions which were translated into 9 languages and circulated internationally as a book.
With more than 50 stops worldwide, do it has become the largest collection of DIY, instructional works to date, including newly commissioned pieces from artists selected by Obrist and ICI.
do it’s presentation is less concerned with notions of reproduction or materiality of the artworks. Rather, this exhibition is about revealing the nuances of human interpretation in its various iterations. Based on written instructions by renowned artists as a point of departure, UMOCA’s reenactment of do it is uniquely site-specific to Utah through the engagement with the community and use of resources available locally.
do it is a traveling exhibition conceived and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. The exhibition and the publication, do it: the compendium, were made possible, in part by grants from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, and with the generous support from Project Perpetual and ICI’s International Forum and Board of Trustees.

Rated PG-13, 80 min.
Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, attempts to solve one of the greatest mysteries in all art: How did 17th century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer (“Girl with a Pearl Earring”) manage to paint so realistically 150 years before the invention of photography? The epic research project Jenison embarks on to test his theory takes him to Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, and eventually to Buckingham Palace to see the Queen’s Vermeer. Directed by magicians Penn and Teller, this film explores the boundaries between technology and art.

Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission!
Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and HawkWatch International’s mission and programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties.
