History & Context

Praxis is a two person collaborative that was formed in 2000 and was first featured in 2001 in PS1/MOMA’s Greater New York show, and in 2002 they were in the Whitney Biennial for their visual art and a series of performative actions. They are a husband and wife team – Brainard and Delia Carey.

After numerous other shows, Reina Sofia, MOMA, Whitney solo show in 2007, they began a new artist project – building an institution, MONA, (The Museum of Non-Visible Art). MONA is currently interviewing artists, curators, and writers from all over the world, as part of an artist-built institution and a social practice. Over 600 interviews have been conducted so far – The Archive of interviews is here.
