Space is the Place

Exhibition 2009

Space is the Place

was an exhibition of documentation of artistic practices which intervene in public space I curated for ISEA, the International Symposium for Electronic Art, 2009. The focus was on ephemeral, temporary works which take place out of a gallery setting, living on only in their documentation.

Participating artists sent documentation of their work as images, texts and video directly to the gallery electronically where the material was printed out and displayed on walls and screens by the curatorial team with the exhibition being produced in the gallery during it's run.

The Loiterers Resistance Movement provided a live intervention from Manchester via Twitter. At the end of the exhibition the documentation was archived as a resource for the students of the National College of Art & Design.

The exhibition run from August 27 - September 1 at the NCAD gallery with a closing reception on August 31.
