Members of the Brandeis community are invited to join artist Caroline Woolard for a working lunch and to learn more about her project at the Rose, The Meeting Game (2019–ongoing).
Combining the formal language of sculptural practice with tools and techniques used for group facilitation, The Meeting Game rewrites the conventional meeting format to investigate new systems for collaboration and cooperation. Woolard's project—the inaugural presentation within the Rose’s new INDEX initiative—designates the Lee Gallery as a space for generative dialogue and prompts participants to explore more open, aware, and intentional exchanges.
The Meeting Game will remain on view through March 8, 2020, and community members are invited to use and collectively contribute to its evolving platform. The game can be played by visitors to the Rose, and also reserved by various groups (classes, clubs, or colleagues, among others) interested in using it as a platform for closed-door conversations. It is also available as a space for open, public dialogues organized in coordination with Rose staff. Woolard welcomes potential partners—those who are interested in communication and facilitation practices, or simply curious to learn more about her work at the museum—to join for a conversation about her project. While attendance on the 27th does not necessitate further participation, it is her hope that this gathering will spark the inspiration for future dialogues initiated and facilitated by members of the Brandeis community.
Sign-ups are requested and required to reserve lunch (provided by the museum). No outside food or beverages are permitted.
