German artist Andrea Büttner utilizes passive and laborious acts to investigate the aesthetic boundaries between conceptual work and craftsmanship. In Little Works (2007), Büttner taught a nun how to use a video camera.

Houston artist Kurt Mueller’s text-based installations encourages audiences to actively engage with current and historical American events. In 2009, Mueller encouraged the public to perform in a karaoke version of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s I Have a Dream speech.

Adrian Williams often collaborates with musicians; in Albatross Ado (2008) the artist combined a silent film of a house in Patagonia being driven slowly through a town with a custom score for two violas and an upright bass.

These three artists were selected for ArtPace by Chus Martinez, Chief Curator, Museu d’Art Contemporani Barcelona.
