Talk, Listen, Participate at the Sheen Center -- and the Whitney Biennial

"Migrations," a multimedia, participatory installation by DOEprojekts (Deborah Adams Doering and Glenn N. Doering), engaged several hundred people over the course of its 7-week run at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture, NYC. We thank all who participated and supported the project during the 15-month development, 5-day installation, Opening Reception, Artist Talks, and de-installation. The installation explored and interrogated the timely cultural keyword "migrations" through artifacts such as monoprints, stencils, wax rubbings, and elaborate tapestries/embroideries. The latter were made in collaboration with the skilled artists/artisans of Savane Kigali in Rwanda, and Pax Rwanda/Juliana Meehan. 

Throughout the 7-week installation/exhibition, people of all ages and from all walks of life were engaged through not only looking at and touching the artifacts, but also through talking, listening, and participation. 

Many people brought their children (more than once). Artists brought their own supplies in order to created unique interpretations of the "migrations" theme. DOEprojekts' Coreforms, the formal basis of each artifact, formed a migratory "path" around the perimeter of the gallery. (More about Coreforms may be found here.)

Many people posted their participation, and the artifacts created and found, on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms! Thank you to all who helped get the word out about our work, especially the tapestries/embroideries by the Rwandan women's art collective. If you know of anyone who would like to support upcoming collaborations with these talented women, please contact us at

Looking toward the future, DOEprojekts is pleased to announce that we are included in a group installation at the 2017 Whitney Biennial — the installation is called "Debtfair," part of Occupy Museums. Look for our "Hot Buttons: Artist • Agitator • Activist" image (below, on t-shirts and flat screen at the exhibition) when you attend the Whitney Biennial, on view through June 11, 2017 at the Whitney Museum of American Art, NYC.
