About the project
Art and Seeking is about rewiring how you interact with art, about connecting to your surroundings in a meaningful way and discovering work outside the elitist walls of the museum. We’ll introduce you to art that’s scrawled guerilla-style on walls; art that’s assertively installed in your favorite park or secretly tucked away in a drainpipe; art that’s free to love and art that’s so much a part of the fabric of your every day that you probably haven’t noticed it. Furthermore, we’ll introduce you to the artists behind this dynamic work, offering unique content and access to these often renegade creatives.
