RIDER Project 2004

[Local Mobile Art]

RIDER Project 2004 presents "CELL" : A Mobile Exhibition

"On Friday, September 17th, The RIDER Project 2004 will present "CELL," a mobile exhibition of 15 NYC artists. Please join us at our opening on N.9th and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, from 6-8 pm."

This project is branching a few strands. Namely, nomadic works like Psy.Geo.Conflux participant Marc Horowitz and the Nomadic Talk Show, but also the more subversive referencing to groups like Critical Art Ensemble with their references to "the theme of cells from biological, topographical,
sociological and political perspectives" and the relationship to the body.

About the RIDER Project:

RIDER Project is a do-it-yourself alternative to the traditional gallery,
and a collaborative art experiment created by NYC artists. The RIDER
Project, located in the back of a moving truck, parks on busy city streets, and invites viewers to enter the truck, view the exhibited art and interact with participating artists. The exhibition, itself, conceived as a mobile "cell," travels through the social body, dispersing art and ideas throughout diverse neighborhoods across NYC.

The RIDER Project is a social sculpture grounded in the ideas of Joseph
Beuys and the belief that art can foment positive social change. RIDER also takes its inspiration from the spirit of freedom depicted in the 1969 film Easy Rider.
RIDER Project2004 also introduces the Ad Infinitum Rider (A.I.R.), a
conceptual artists' contract guaranteeing resale royalties to participating
artists, ad infinitum.

Please visit www.art-anon.org for more information about the RIDER Project 2003, entitled, ch-ch-changes which traveled from Brooklyn to Chelsea 'drawing a line' upon the topography of NYC.
