Plausible Artworlds at UTC / January 12 - April 13, 2010 / as part of PMA Topics, expanded/collaborative practice
Please join us for Plausible Artworlds 2010 gatherings in Chattanooga, or on the internet, every Tuesday night through April, 6PM to 8PM. If you cannot attend in person, Plausible Artworlds will be available on the internet via Skype. Plausible Artworlds is a project to collect and share knowledge about alternative models of creative practice. From alternative economies to open source culture and other social experiments, Plausible Artworlds is a platform for research and participation with artworlds that present a distinct alternative to mainstream culture.
UTC Assistant Professor Jessica Westbrook and Adjunct Professor Adam Trowbridge, as part of the Philadelphia-based group Basekamp, are collaborating in Plausible Artworlds to extend the educational outreach. In this, they are facilitating a UTC course that will intersect with the Plausible Artworlds presentations and enable students to experiment in collaborative art practice. We are inviting the community to join the class every Tuesday night in the University of Tennessee Art Department, Room 340 in the Fine Arts Center located at the corner of Vine and Palmetto.

About Plausible Artworlds 2010
Plausible Artworlds is a project to collect and share knowledge about alternative models of creative practice. From alternative economies to open source culture and other social experiments, Plausible Artworlds is a platform for research and participation with artworlds that present a distinct alternative to mainstream culture. On January 5th Basekamp will kick off a year of “Plausible Artworlds” potluck events happening every Tuesday night in 2010 from 6-8PM EST – both online over Skype as well as in-person at the Basekamp space in Philadelphia and at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga.
The discussions will be started each week by the invited guests whose collective practice exemplify “artworlds” that in some substantial way differ from a prevailing and more broadly accepted “Artworld”. Corresponding projects will be exhibited at Basekamp in support of these weekly discussions along with a publication to be compiled at the end of the year.
We invite artists, educators and community members to join us every Tuesday night – in person, or on Skype, skypename: ‘basekamp’.
“Plausible Artworlds” is a project organized by Basekamp and Stephen Wright, and has been funded by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through the Philadelphia Exhibitions Initiative.
