ART ANYWHERE? Friday 22 March – 9.30am

ART ANYWHERE?
A free one-day symposium event exploring art the the outmost limits of location-specificity

9.30AM - 5.30PM Friday March 22, 2019 at Buxton Contemporary, followed by the official launch of Project Anywhere 2019 Global Exhibition Program with Professor Su Baker AM - Director, Centre of Visual Art.

Please RSVP here

Today, much artistic activity takes place well outside the limits of traditional exhibition circuits. Much of this activity is more concerned with events, actions, sites, relations and processes rather than discretely exhibitable objects. Moreover, given that some artistic projects can exist as radically spatially diffused distributions of elements, artists and audiences alike can face significant challenges associated with adequately presenting, disseminating and evaluating work of this kind. This one-day symposium will explore various ways in which artistic projects such as these might be represented and evaluated in their often-uneven transition from conception through production to dissemination (and after-life).  Comprising a series of short presentations, performances and discussions featuring the work of artists, curators and other creative practitioners working well beyond the limits of established exhibition formats, this symposium event will explore dynamic contemporary artistic practices at the outermost limits of location-specificity.

 

This event is curated by Sean Lowry (VCA, Melbourne) and Simone Douglas (Parsons School for Design, New York City) as part of an ongoing partnership between the Centre of Visual Art (University of Melbourne) and Parsons Fine Art (Parsons School of Design, The New School).
