Introduction: EXHIBITION AS MEDIUM

Introduction: EXHIBITION AS MEDIUM

 is the Project Space programme under development by CRATE's newly appointed curator, Toby Huddlestone.

Starting with a on April 16th 2011, it will examine alternate models of exhibition format.

Artist-led spaces such as CRATE (independent and experimental) should be at the forefront of current critical discussion around curatorial and cultural activity - it is in project spaces, temporary sites and 'independent activity' through which creativity and new ideas evolve. The focus of the exhibitions in this programme will shift from a place of consumption to a site of action, response and production. A more discursive framework will evolve through this allowing a more active involvement from the artists and audience, often prompting repeat visits to see how an exhibition or project is evolving.
