do it @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Jan 17 – May 31 all-day
do it @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

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.

Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch Headquarters

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.

Wild & Scenic Film Festival Hosted by Summit Land Conservancy @ Jim Santy Auditorium

SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call to action!

The stories give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth.

Summit Land Conservancy has selected 13 environmental and adventure films ranging from 2 minutes to 27 minutes in length for this year’s festival. From a story about a boy catching his first fish to a visual poem about the joy of air, from a recreation of a legendary 1906 expedition to a profile on a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, from a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek examination of the plastic bag problem to a visually stunning exploration of a river that has not kissed the ocean in years, these 13 films will inspire, educate and challenge you and, quite possibly, change your world.

Arrive early to sign up to win fabulous door prizes. Tickets available online or at the door: $10 adults, $5 students. Proceeds to benefit the Summit Land Conservancy.
