We don’t think of Project Row Houses as a site for formalism. We don’t imagine that artists are going into these small reclaimed houses and using them to investigate the plastic visual qualities inherent in the medium. We aren’t accustomed to thinking about installations in those terms at all (although certainly minimalists did so in their own fashion), but more importantly, we aren’t used to thinking about Project Row Houses that way. The project as a whole is explicitly about community engagement, and many of the projects are political or polemical, or have social practice dimensions (for example, John Plueker’s Antena Books: Pop-Up Bookstore and Literary Experimentation Lab or Darin Forehand’s Printproject).
