MK Guth: 2008 Whitney Biennial

For the 2008 Biennial artist, MK Guth created a participatory artwork called "Ties of Protection and Safekeeping." She invites visitors to the Park Avenue Armory to answer the question "What is Worth Protecting?" Visitors write their answers on strips of red flannel cloth which MK Guth weaves into a long braid that grows longer every day.
