In Display

‘In Display’ is concerned with creating situations of display and positing the subsequent encounter as an event. The project explores the gallery as structure for display alongside relationships that are discovered between art-object and site. Following a departure from the gallery as site, how might display continue to facilitate a platform for experimentation and conversation? Interested in the relationship between contemporary art and design, the project aims to test the role
of the manifesto as provocation for design and dialogue. ‘In Display’ is an exploration in concurrently designing structure and program.
The project proposes a series of talks in relation to individual practice and in declaring strategies toward a manifesto. These strategies are explored spatially via a physical, changeable platform that is influenced by the dialogue occurring within. In this way, the project begins to explore structure as a frame for a situation.
