do it - Exhibition

do it began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. They were curious to see what would happen if they started an exhibition that could constantly generate new versions of itself. To test the idea, they invited 12 artists to propose artworks based on written “scores” or instructions that can be openly interpreted every time they are presented. The instructions were then translated into 9 different languages and circulated internationally as a book.   Since then, hundreds of artists have been invited to submit instructions, and do it has taken place all over the world from Austria to Australia, from Thailand to Uruguay, from Canada to Iceland giving new meaning to the concept of an exhibition in progress. Each do it exhibition is uniquely site-specific because it engages the local community in a dialogue that responds to a set of instructions. As a result do it is less concerned with copies, images, or reproductions of artworks, than with human interpretation. No two iterations of the same instructions are ever identical.

South St. Paul gears up for fall festival


Rainbow Corral Critters brought the petting zoo to the On the Road Again festivities on Oct. 5, 2013. The cuddly critters will be back again this Saturday, Oct. 4, along with other family-friendly events, such as a new Union Pacific mini train, a flea market, face painting and duck races.

South St. Paul Jaycees team member Jessica Trisko stirred the group's booya entry during the annual World Championship Booya contest in 2013. The World Championship Booya is back again this year, as booya cooks battle for the best Midwestern stew Saturday, Oct. 4. (file photo)

'On the Road Again' hosts Boucha, new mini train
While kicking back with a couple of "Hammies" beers after a successful rodeo in South St. Paul, Walt Books and his buddy Bob Yanz started brewing up another attraction to keep the small town on the map: a booya contest.
And it wasn't just going to be a local shindig. Books wanted it to be big. So big, he dubbed it the "World Championship Booya" in 1982, a name that eventually attracted national news coverage and an intense rivalry with other booya organizers — in particular, a Wisconsin newspaper columnist — over Books's claim that South St. Paul is the booya capital of the U.S.
