About Open Hours

Individuals or organizations that question, challenge, or expand traditional systems of knowledge and power are invited to propose and present an Open Hours program, hosted by the BMA. Critical, informative, participatory, or just plain fun, Open Hours events are free, open to the public, and explore ideas of media consumption, late stage capitalism, and the production of knowledge—themes explored in the exhibitions DIS | A Good Crisis and Commons Collaboration: Get Your Life! now on view.
