Jonathan Saiz’s installation #WhatisUtopia is comprised of a column covered with 10,000 tiny drawings, paintings, and sculptures. By definition, utopia is “an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens.” The artist employs social media to spark conversation and document responses about our ability to re-envision and embody a modern utopia. More than 10,000 artworks were made to be given away after the end of the exhibition.
Consider Jonathan Saiz's invitation to join his dialogue about utopia. Engage through Instagram at @utopia_is_free with the hashtag #WhatisUtopia or #JonathanSaizatDAM.
