The Pulitzer Arts Foundation presents Assembly Required, an exhibition of work by nine artists who invite the public to shape and co-produce their artworks. The artists—Francis Alÿs, Rasheed Araeen, Siah Armajani, Tania Bruguera/INSTAR, Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, Yoko Ono, Lygia Pape, and Franz Erhard Walther—were selected for their shared belief in public action and its role in transforming society. Taken as a whole, the work in Assembly Required poses vital questions about how art enables us to imagine new ways of being in the world.
Created between the 1950s and the present, the artworks in Assembly Required respond to distinct social and political moments and issues, from unrest in the United States during the Vietnam War to Peru’s military dictatorship in the 1990s, and more. The artists offer unique perspectives on social change, addressing the need for optimism and hope in the face of global tensions. Throughout this immersive exhibition, members...of the public will interact with the artworks and each other while sharing new experiences. Ultimately, Assembly Required poses questions about how art allows us to imagine new ways of being in the world.
Assembly Required is curated by Pulitzer Arts Foundation Curator Stephanie Weissberg.
Several artworks in the exhibition have interactive components, including stacking lightweight objects, cutting with paper, and stepping up to enter artworks. The Pulitzer can provide a digital read-only guide for screen readers used by guests who are blind or partially sighted and a large-print text guide for guests with low vision.
