‘do it & do it (archive)’
‘do it & do it (archive)’ came to be in 1993 when the question “what would happen if an exhibition never stopped?” was posed by Hans Ulrich Obrist and artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. Since it’s inception is has been constantly evolving and generating ever more relevant and newer versions of itself.

‘Going on Going’ –Justin Boyd
Selected as one of the 2014-2015 Blue Star Contemporary Berlin Residents, Boyd spent his days recording the city of Berlin through its sounds. Boyd’s multimedia sculptural installation is a deinstallation and processing of his field recordings as object, sound and environment, creating a new sort of landscape for visitors to experience in Blue Star’s interior and exterior space.

‘Blue Star Ice Company’ – Works Progress
Led by husband-wife Collaborative Directors Colin Kloecker and Shanai Matteson, Works Progress takes a “hydrosocial” approach to the role of water and its impact on society. The exhibition is a temporary space to experience and inhabit the hyrosocial landscape of San Antonio and South Texas.
