WOUND is a study center for practices of listening and collaboration. The exhibition has been conceived of and designed by 2007 The Cooper UnionSchool of Art graduate Caroline Woolard as a practice space for “the mending of time and attention.”
The study center offers free trainings in listening, attention and collaboration, all of which foreground the relationship between capitalism and time, practice and temporality. Trainings are led by Ultra-red, Shaun Leonardo, the Order of the Third Bird, Project 404, Sick Time with Canaries, the Design Studio for Social Intervention, Adelheid Mers and the Extrapolation Factory. WOUND displays a collection of sculptural tools which can be used by visitors who have been trained by exhibition staff. Outside of training hours, the study center is a quiet place to sit, read and contemplate conceptions of time as articulated by Chloe Bass, Matthew Buckingham, Judith Leemann, Dave McKenzie, Linda Montano, Yoko Ono, taisha paggett and Ashley Hunt, Danica Phelps, the New York Horological Society and the National Watch and Clock Museum.

The Braid – conversations about practicing
Artist and professor of Arts Administration and Policy at the School of the Arts Institute of Chicago, Adelheid Mers will facilitate diagram-aided conversations about their practices with/among artists, managers, theorists and others who are open to sharing their thinking and experiences.Conversations will be fluidly traced on a Braid Whiteboard and a supporting cast of related diagrams. The Braid diagram presents three domains that may variously combine into an individual art practice,alliteratively tagged Making, Mediating and Managing. Borrowed from Topology, this visualization is intended to serve as an opening and is itself open to transformation by its users. Documentation is encouraged.
