ARTx ARTx is the R&D lab of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Posting from the department of Audience Experiences and Performance.

ARTx is the research and development lab of the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Focusing on experimental and experiential programming, ARTx works to remake the traditional museum as a space for innovation, participation, and surprise. Projects include IMA Family Days, Avant Brunch, Pop-Up Park, Cereal Cinema, Monster Drawing Rally, Indy Art Swap, Drawing Club, Art X-Fit, and much more. ARTx also hosts talks, presents performances, and commissions installations by local and nationally-known contemporary artists. ARTx is administered by the department of Audience Experiences and Performance, but is a cross-disciplinary endeavor, engaging IMA staff from curatorial, public programs, production, and audience engagement. ARTx is made possible by a gift from the Efroymson Family Fund.

What do museum audiences need most? More time for play.

"Happiness intersects with this social change, as people begin to think more deeply about whether they are leading fulfilling lives. Institutions, including some governments, have experimented with ways to quantify not just prosperity but a deeper sense of well-being. As the report points out, “Millennials have good instincts when it comes to pursuing happiness, preferring to spend their money on experiences rather than stuff, a strategy that has been shown to be more likely to produce lasting happiness.”

A new report suggests changes in how we work and play could have major impact on museums.

Daniel Wohl: Holographic

Pitchfork has posted a positive review of the ARTx co-commissioned album Holographic by Daniel Wohl. Have you check it out yet?

Composer Daniel Wohl specializes in pieces that bridge the divide between acoustic and programmed elements; at their best, his works confuse your sense of what is played live and what is manipulated. His new album Holographic features singers Olga Bell and Caroline Shaw.
