"Documenta USA: 1,000 Artists from 35 Countries"
2001-09-15 until 2001-10-27
Museum of New Art
Detroit, , USA United States of America

The largest Art Exposition in the world is coming home to America‚s newest museum. And when it does, DOCUMENTA USA will invite the viewer to rethink the familiar in art and to imagine all its possibilities. DOCUMENTA USA is all those materials that are used to decide an exhibition (slides, postcards, biographies), and all those materials that remain once it is gone (catalogues, critical reviews, interviews). In this manner, as an unfiltered survey of the world‚s art, DOCUMENTA USA becomes an investigation into what decides art, and at the same moment, who decides art: by allowing the museum visitor to exercise that role for the first time without prejudice.

Documenting implies research, study and analysis, but it may also be raw, emotional, and creative. It is defined as information gathering, but, at the same time, the processing of information into something new. - the Tate Modern

There is also a component of the exhibition where the visitor is encouraged to not only touch, but actually handle the art created for this purpose by such artists as Arman, Jenny Holzer, Peter Halley, Christo, Vito Acconci, and over a hundred others.

Another component where the museum is open to any artist‚s work, as long as it fits through the museum doors.

And finally, a video component, FIFTEEN, where the artists speak one on one to the camera about their art.

DOCUMENTA USA will introduce its audience, not only to the best, but potentially, to all of new art. Condensed from its original 100 days, the exhibition will totally refresh and renew itself every 100 minutes. There are over one thousand artists participating, from thirty-five different countries.
