On our way to Europe after Los Angeles, particle holders have the opportunity to vote for which city in Europe they would like to see the collection tour, supporting our goal of a community-powered museum.
As the collection tours the world, the Particle Foundation aims to host more exhibitions around the centerpiece purchased for the collection and to include emerging and established artists to respond to works that will be acquired in the future.
