Team Players for Plausible Artworlds by Basekamp and friends, a series of nine weekly exploratory events for the Plausible Artworlds project, in Locally Localized Gravity at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia in 2007. Photo courtesy of the Institute of Contemporary Art.

Plausible Artworlds examined the emergence of plural artistic environments that exist outside of the commercial or institutional mainstream. With this grant, Scott Rigby and his Basekamp collaborators organized a series of 50 weekly events at Basekamp's then-headquarters in Center City, Philadelphia. During each meeting they talked or Skype'd with artists' collectives all over the world, from Melbourne and Hong Kong, to Johannesburg, Tehran, and New Delhi. Documentation of these events exists on a related website and can be downloaded in book form.
