“Home – A Collaborative Exhibition”
[Home: A collaborative exhibition] will take place in The Greenwich Gallery @ Linear House in October 2012. It will be the culmination of a collaborative discourse within the Crossing Lines Group at Goldsmith’s College, University of London.
The exhibition will feature artists, photographers, poets who engage in a full collaboration regarding the diverse and multiple meanings & processes surrounding “home”. The gallery space as well as the collaborative body of work is created by the group. The main idea of the exhibition is to create a full collaboration and – through this – to create a new approach to curating a group exhibition. What will be presented in the final exhibition is merely not a show of several individual’s bodies of work but rather a full collaboration that will show a concise body of work created together.
A workshop in conjunction with the exhibition will be hosted by Johannes Rigal & John Levett, both Visiting Fellows in CUCR, and intends to focus on the validity (or otherwise) of the conventions of the ‘Gallery Show’.
The intention of the HOME exhibition was to encourage a collaborative approach to the activity such that the emergence of the exhibition would promote consideration of the process of negotiation, fresh insights into the origin & content of original work & a sympathetic appreciation of the processes of selection, comparison & conjoining involved in curation. Opportunities for critical analysis, evaluation & valuing the work presented by colleagues would be central to an approach where the work would remain personal but the space would become collective.
The workshop will explore the idea of collaborative curation & will illustrate related issues arising from HOME.
The workshop will be followed by the Private View giving participants the opportunity to discuss in depth the emergence of each individual body of work contained within HOME.
