Open Work

This is the documentation of the exhibition of the above title, which offers a look at some of Para/Site’s projects from the past 8 years (1996-2004). The exhibition ‘brought together works of art and documentation of past Para/Site activities with the aim of examining the dialogues among the artists with different publics. In the process, it interogated artistic self-determination, and initiated a re-thinking of the relevance of parallel strategies of exhibition, curatorship and artistic practice’.

Transcriptions of discussions held among the artists, curators and art practioners are included.

Other participating artists included: Ryszard Dabek, Chris Heaphy, Gabrielle Jennings, Sarah Stubbs & Brett Jones, Yvonne van der Velden
