Framework Arts presents the League of Reluctant Bicyclists, a participatory art project.
The League is born out of the need for subtle fellowship and solidarity that serves as a motivational nudge to get in the saddle, and a desire to explore and make visible the relationships involved in getting from one place to another.
During April 1-May 31, 2019, League members chose for themselves what their participation looked like – where and how often they rode – and documented that experience through photography, short written responses, and film footage collected by the project archivists. The project content was both revealed and shaped by member benefits, optional weekend meetups, the manifesto, and member testimonials.
This showcase chronicles the League’s experience through artifacts and interactive artworks that explore the spaces between reluctance and enthusiasm, riding and not riding, comfort and discomfort, two wheels and four.
