'Art Anywhere?' Symposium Services
Time & Location
About the Event
The services of Honi Ryan to create, manage and promote an online symposium for Project Anywhere.
The work will be done online and the symposium dates and details will be scheduled and coordinated in collaboration with Sean Lowry.
Today, much artistic activity takes place outside traditional exhibition circuits and is variously characterised by where and when it is situated. Many of these artistic activities are more concerned with events, actions, sites, relations and processes than with the display of discretely exhibited objects. Indeed, given that some contemporary artistic projects manifest as radically spatially diffused distributions of elements, artists and audiences alike face significant challenges when presenting, disseminating and evaluating work of this kind. This free one-day symposium will explore various ways in which artistic projects located outside conventional exhibition contexts and programming schedules are represented and evaluated. Comprising a series of presentations, performances and discussions featuring the work of artists, curators and other creative practitioners working outside established exhibition formats, this event will explore art at the outermost limits of location-specificity.
This event is curated by Simone Douglas (Parsons School of Design, New York City) and Sean Lowry (VCA, Melbourne) as part of an ongoing partnership between the Centre of Visual Art (University of Melbourne) and Parsons Fine Art (Parsons School of Design, The New School). Douglas and Lowry have been collaborating since 2014 across a series of international conferences, symposia and publications dedicated to publicly connecting diverse artistic activities taking place outside traditional exhibition circuits.
