On view at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) from November 8, 2008, through February 8, 2009, The Art of Participation: 1950 to Now presents an overview of the rich and varied history of participatory art practice during the past six decades, exploring strategies and situations in which the public has taken a collaborative role in the art-making process.

1st Public White Cube (2001/2008), by Joachim Blank, Gerrit Gohlke and Karl Heinz Jeron, takes place both online and on-site in a series of eBay auctions. Participants will bid not for ownership of the works on display (created by guest artists selected by Joachim Blank, Gerrit Gohlke and Karl Heinz Jeron), but for the right to alter and reinstall them according to their own proposal.
