Hands On!

I attended an exciting exhibition recently at the Pulitzer that I recommend to you all!  It is the first commissioned installation piece, and is a multi-sensory exploration of the architecture designed by Tadao Ando.  The artist is Ann Hamilton and the title of the project is stylus. The exhibit includes many levels of interactive programs that will continue to evolve and develop throughout the installation period.  Ann was chosen to represent our country at the 48th Venice Biennale.

I love art that you can touch and explore.There are thousands of papier-mache hands in the custom cubicles! 

And I always like an experience that includes a piano! Composer Shahrokh Yadegari collaborated with Ann on this project.  Ann also includes her poetry, newspapers, and all institutional programming by Pulitzer.  She has very sensitively designed this site-specific piece for both the architecture and the city of St. Louis.  Go see, read, hear,  and touch!
