Oliver Herring’s first public TASK party in NYC

“Check out this new ART21 Exclusive video that follows artist Oliver Herring around Madison Square Park as he organizes his largest TASK Party to date. TASK parties encourage people to take creative risks and to break down social barriers through a simple, “self-perpetuating” cycle: Each participant writes down a task and places it into a box and, in exchange, retrieves a task from the box. Participants work together to realize their tasks through provided materials such as paint, paper, tape, plastic wrap, and foil. “These tasks can be interpreted however you want,” says Herring. “The tools are your imagination and your imagination is limitless.” Since 2002, Herring has organized TASK events around the world, at military bases, museums, churches, schools, and other venues.”
