Action Painting is our body of installation work that explores new locations. Inspired by the excitement of discovery, we integrate premade art into new landscapes. In Richmond, we worked with 1708 Gallery and Richmond’s community to activate eight Action Paintings. These works are experiments that hone our collective’s communication skills and teach us about ourselves. The point of the work is in what we learn and see when we quickly and spontaneously devise an experiment and then activate it. Akin to the work of previous Action Painters, like Jackson Pollock, the point is in the action.
