The exposition Being as becoming: liberating-art and/or liberating art is a collaboration between public gallery and publisher Onomatopee (Eindhoven) and artist-run space Bus Projects (Melbourne). The project integrates notions of ‘the contemporary’ and aims to assert the added qualities of artistic production in our life. Does art liberate and/or should it be liberated?
The exhibition Being as becoming: liberating-art and/or liberating art # 1/2 will take place @ Bus Projects Melbourne April 11 – May 5 featuring artists Sanne Vaassen and Tim Breukers. The artists will be available for conversations every Wednesday from 6 PM. The second part of the exposition will take place @ Onomatopee Eindhoven September 7 – October 7. Featuring artists Philippine Hoegen and Alex Farrar. The artists are available for conversations every Friday at 6 PM.
Both exhibitions will feature open-studio or residency-like situations, to be documented in a logbook/diary of causes and consequences written by local critics who follow the artistic process and will be visually recorded and shown by means of a stop-motion camera. During both exhibitions visitors can engage in an ongoing on-site correspondence with Caradt professor Sebastian Olma (writing from NL) and Johanna Drucker (writing from the US).
