"The Museum Has Abandoned Us” takes its title from LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner’s project, “HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US”, which was removed by The Museum of Moving Image when the location of the piece became too volatile.

isthisit?'s founder, artist & curator Bob Bicknell-Knight takes over STATE OF THE ART to present an exhibition from artists reacting to the 'real' world's relationship to the 'art' world, and vice versa. Showcased works, sometimes inadvertantly, attempt to break out of the art world's seemingly impenetrable sphere, sometimes using the Internet to do so.
