As most know, last week at #aam2012 a panel I put together presented an “Elastic Manifesto.” It was created to inspire, ground in reality and support museums and artists interested in experimental projects, and make the case that at this moment, museums are particularly ripe for this type of work. We’ll post the panel presentations online soon. I’ll continue developing and sharing my own thinking and related work here.
You can download it as a PDF handout.
It consists of 3 parts which are available as editable Google Docs with the links below. Please add to it or share freely:

- Why: In this beautiful short essay, Anthony Huberman makes a claim for why art organizations should take risks, not only questioning what they show and do but how they could behave better moving from a place of “knowing” to one of caring
