Be Courageous: DARE
October 19, 2018 - February 10, 2019
LOS GATOS, CA — October 2018 — New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU) is excited to present Be Courageous: DARE. Inspired by a recent TEDxLosGatos event held at the Netflix campus in Los Gatos, this exhibition presents an interactive opportunity for museum visitors to call up their courage along side video highlights of the program that featured live speakers and video testimonials responding to the theme of “Dare.”
Dare is defined as having the necessary courage or boldness to undertake or challenge something or someone. Riffing on artist Candy Chang’s Before I Die participatory public installation, described by The Atlantic as one of the most creative community projects ever, Be Courageous: DARE presents a giant chalkboard wall for NUMU visitors to write down their aspirations of undertaking personal acts of courage - daring themselves to think, imagine, create and change. The interactive chalkboard wall created by NUMU for participants at the September 2018 TEDxLos Gatos conference will also be on view in the exhibit along with video highlights from the program to provide inspiration to exhibition visitors.
Be Courageous: DARE is on view in the museum’s Spotlight Gallery from October 19th through February 10, 2019.
