James Leonard, The Tent of Casually Observed Phenologies, 2016

Reimagining Tradition is a three-week exhibition developed by Open Source Gallery, to highlight intersections between socially engaged art and ritual practice. Reimagining Tradition will take place October 1-23 as a series of site-specific projects by New York City-based artists.These pieces defy the constraints of traditional gallery exhibitions and blur modern distinctions between art and the sacred. We are excited to celebrate this collection of work that inspires introspection and activates compassion within the community and the art world at large.

Reimagining Tradition draws together three artists from the established Open Source community: Jasmine Murrell, Leigh Davis, and James Leonard. One key hallmark of the Open Source model is our dedication to community building through extended programming. We achieve this through a mix of events that support our exhibitions—including workshops, monthly lectures, storytelling series, and by inviting our artists to introduce practitioners from their own networks to our audience. We are collaborating with artist James Leonard to curate extended programming for this ritual-based arts series.

Artists in this program include:
Khi Armand
Leigh Davis
Erin Ellen Kelly
James Leonard
Jasmine Murrell
ULTRACULTURAL OTHERS

This project is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts and the Joseph Robert Foundation.
