The Circus for Construction is a traveling institution in search of knowledge, crafts and individuals outside of a traditional gallery’s reach. Located on the back of a custom built truck, the Circus for Construction draws from a long history of itinerant and heterotopic spaces. The project learns from both historic traveling sideshows and food trucks, circumventing the baggage of its brick and mortar peers by hitting the road.


In fall 2014, the Circus for Construction will arrive at three cities (Boston, Buffalo and Ithaca) to host both local and imported spectacles. Afterward, it leaves behind nothing but flattened grass.
