For the 2008 Whitney Biennial, artist MK Guth created a participatory work called Ties of Protection and Safekeeping. The artist invited visitors to the Park Avenue Armory to answer the question “What is Worth Protecting?” Visitors wrote their answers on strips of red flannel cloth which MK Guth weaved into a long braid over the course of the exhibition.
