Clawson & Ward - Over Dubbed Scenes Sept 2013

Created in response to the Davis Museum’s format of display, Overdubbed Scenes hints at the malleable nature of museum collections. This malleability refers to the continuous re-contextualisation of an exhibit or archive. During this translation, the archive’s content is susceptible to a range of influences including; public opinion, capital and changes to the political landscape. Applying the methods used to re-animate and promote a collection, Anna Clawson and Nicole Ward directly refer to low-fi products produced solely for disposable merchandising. Incorporating the crop editing tool, the artists use a single snapshot* to provide the backdrop to Overdubbed Scenes. * Scene captured by the artists in front of the Soviet commissioned Ninth Fort Memorial to the Holocaust, Kaunas, Lithuania 2013. www.clawsonandward.co.uk

Bridgette Ashton- Margate Subterranea SEPT 2013

MargateSubterranea

FRIDAY SEP 20 – THURSDAY SEP 26 2013 A new exhibition and walk by South-West based artist, Bridgette Ashton. The project is a new commission and a continuation of Ashton's series of Margate works originally launched at Turner Contemporary in 2011. Margate Subterranea looks specifically at three underground ‘attractions’ in Margate: The Vortigern Caves, the Clifton Baths Estate and the Shell Grotto. Ashton’s work looks at places and narratives, sometimes real and at other times invented. The pieces presented at CRATE survey ideas surrounding redundant or overlooked sites, objects and archives. They celebrate the paradox of the replica as visitor attraction and the nostalgia that surrounds it.

Don Celender Surveyed Part 2 - Jun - Aug 2013

SURVEYED

Part 2 21 June - 11 August 2013 Surveyed Part 2 was the second part of the first European solo exhibition of the American conceptual artist Don Celender (1931 – 2005). Celender was a master of asking questions, his work takes the form of mass mailed out questions and surveys to specific groups of people or professions (chefs, prison guards, museum directors, daytime TV actors, for example) asking them what they think about life, work, art and often, ultimately, death. The responses were then collected together and displayed as, what Celender called, 'Conceptual Documentation'. Although several of Celender's survey works were bound into books and circulated worldwide, the majority remain unpublished and have never been seen outside of the artists New York gallery, O.K. Harris. Surveyed Part 2 was a rare opportunity to see a selection of these unpublished projects including Critics Choice, Ignored and Neglected Artists Survey Part 2, Aesthetic Experiences, Art Dealers Selection of Artists Survey, Art Movements and Portraiture Study. The exhibition was a collaboration between CRATE. and Arnolfini, Bristol. Contact sacha@cratespace.co.uk
