Taking its title from an exhortation made by Miles Davis to his musicians, this exhibition identifies occasions in art when the seductions of consummate style or cleverness are sacrificed to gain access to a greater artistic, philosophical or spiritual reality. Such attainment may be achieved in varied ways: by invoking states of invisibility or self-negation, by the assumption of a mythic identity, by transforming repetition into incantation, or through the conversion of aphoristic elegance into gestures of transcendence.

Agency of Unrealized Projects (AUP) presents a public database of unrealized artworks. To submit your unrealized works and view other unrealized art projects, visit www.e-flux.com/aup. Unlike models and unrealized projects submitted for architectural competitions, which are frequently published, similar endeavors planned but not carried out by visual artists around the world remain unnoticed or invisible. Since 1990 Hans Ulrich Obrist has been gathering information on thousands of unrealized artists' projects, on roads not taken that together comprise a reservoir of ideas. There are the forgotten projects, the directly or indirectly censored projects, the partially realized projects, the misunderstood projects, the oppressed projects, the lost projects, the unrealizable projects: all between the non-real and the probable.
