Event We Love: Cildo Meireles’ “Meshes of Freedom” in London

Event We Love: Cildo Meireles’ “Meshes of Freedom” in London
Christine Huang

Londonist points us to a great social art project to be unveiled at the Tate Modern this weekend. As part of artist Cildo Meireles’ Malhas de Liberdade / Meshes of Freedom piece, thousands of Londoners were mailed a set of three orange plastic rods, all parts of a gigantic mesh to be assembled at the museum on the on Saturday. The community-assembled piece will become part of Meireles’ ongoing series of mathematically- and literary-inspired mesh works, which have been seen three iterations since his first mesh piece appeared in 1976 (in the form of cotton weaved together by a fisherman from Maranhão). 

Visitors without pieces to the grid are invited to take part as audience members, and watch the artistic social networking in real-time.
