June 6, 2008 marked the opening of Circulation, an exhibition of artist works that confront, explore, exploit, challenge, and investigate the many modes, methods, and effects of circulation and dissemination. The show features a roster of artists from around the continental United States as well as several international artists.

Featured artists include:

Works traveled between continents and across oceans to arrive in Rochester, NY for the exhibition, which will run through July 2, 2008. By the time the works return to their creators or newfound appreciators the art will have traveled over 41,000 miles for the exhibition(more than one-and-a-half times the circumference of the earth).

The curator’s statement reads-
The strength and value in art is located not solely in its visuality, but also in its ability to circulate as an object, or at the most basic level- its grounds in a circulating idea.

-Within a tiny droplet of blood, there are some 5 million red blood cells. It takes about 20 seconds for each of these red blood cells to circle the whole body. These red blood cells will each make approximately 250,000 round trips of the body before being replaced by another red blood cell.

USA Today has a daily circulation of 2,528,437. In one year, that amounts to 922,879,505 reads.

-By the end of the Civil War, between one-third and one-half of all U.S. paper currency in circulation was counterfeit.

-The ice age cycles were influenced by changes in ocean circulation arising from changes in the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

Responses to the call for entries included works inspired by corporeal circulation, tectonic movement, transfer of currency, reformation, reappropriation, and the library’s ability to circulate information.
