a conversation-on-exhibition

– presentation and public conversation within the series of conversations Close Encounters, organized by Reserch Center of a.pass in the kitchen of artists’ studios in Manchesterstraat in Brussels.

I invited a researcher, critic and exhibition-maker Marcelo Rezende for A conversation-on-exhibition: a three hours of public monologue, dialogue and at times conversation. together we exposed our problems with conventions in exhibition making, he as a curator and director of museum and me as an artist. in the form of storytelling we brought in some historical examples of different artistic strategies for visibility, coming to the shared desire to shift the focus from exhibiting objects to creating spaces of collective learning through arts. this was audio recorded and documented in the research portfolio.
