Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist The point of departure for It’s Urgent! is an exhibition model that I started (with Christian Boltanski and Betrand Lavier) in 1993 with do it. For this on-going, flexible and open-ended show, we invite artists to write instructions, scores and recipes that can then be interpreted by others each time they are presented. For example, poet Eileen Myles (who is also included in the new It’s Urgent! project) made a piece called How to Run for President of the United States. Her text is a reminder that even in these frightening times, democracy belongs to the people, and that art can be a means of reclaiming it.
