Presented throughout the historic Teachers College building on 120th Street in New York City Doing and Undergoing will be a site-specific installation presented on four floors of the fully operational graduate school. The exhibition will be accompanied by an interactive audio-video guide, , which will be constructed during summer 2013; aswell as an electronic catalog, which is planned for late Fall 2013.

Artists must identify the site of the proposed artwork by going to the website doingandundergoing.net which has all the sites numbered, listed and imaged. Please identify in your proposal the site by the numerical designation.

We ask that artists directly respond to the site and to keep in mind that the exhibition is located in an active and fully functioning graduate school and approach that in a thoughtful manner. Medium: no restrictions.
