Bureau for Open Cultures is a means to capture the exhibitions, programs, and writings by James Voorhies. It has operated as a combined curatorial practice, philosophy and platform that inhabits and connects with institutions and publishers to realize projects with artists and writers. The projects forge intersections among art, design, education, and consumer culture, often rethinking and pushing against the way art institutions engage their audiences.
This site functions as an archive and an occasional communication outlet for the projects and exhibitions organized independently or for institutions by James Voorhies. Bureau for Open Culture is sometimes a collaboration with designer Nate Padavick.
