2016 Residency at PS13Q

Anchored in the exhibition of Maintenance artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles at the Queens Museum, students in this 10-week program considered the artists responsibility in creating works of art.  Using a quote from Ukeles' Maintenance Manifesto "Refuse is the most basic and honest information we have about who we are", we pondered the questions; How do we make the invisible/visible,  What and who makes our school run?  Students collected refuse from the school lunchroom and through hands-on skill shares, worked collaboratively to transform the waste into a site-specific installation on the 2nd fl. of the school.
