Bureau for Open Culture is a nonprofit contemporary arts organization that takes the form of an institution to challenge and expand the way art is produced, exhibited, and experienced. Its practice approaches the exhibition model as if it is a problem to be solved, and a formal and historical structure to be interrogated. Bureau for Open Culture utilizes exhibition, design, and critical writing in connection with institutional, public, and commercial spaces to realize its work, which is made possible through collaborations with individuals, museums, academies, and businesses, from the visual and performing arts to the built environment, design, urbanism, and publishing.
