Circus For Construction

The Circus for Construction is a traveling gallery and event space in search of the knowledge, crafts, and individuals outside of institutions’ traditional reach. Located on the back of a custom-built truck trailer, the Circus draws from a long history of itinerant and heterotopic spaces. The Circus learns from both 19th century traveling sideshows and contemporary food trucks, circumventing the baggage of its brick-and-mortar peers by hitting the road.
